NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tornadoes raked across the Deep South on Tuesday evening.

The National Weather Service says at least seven tornadoes hit southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi. One slammed into a RV park in Convent, Louisiana, killing at least two people.

The St. James Parish sheriff says another 30 people were injured there, and seven of them are in critical condition. A third person died after a possible tornado touched down near Purvis, Mississippi.

The storm system has also been doing damage in northwest Alabama. The National Weather Service says radar shows a tornado touched down briefly in Marion County near Hackleburg, which was devastated by a killer tornado nearly five years ago.

State troopers said officers were reporting fallen trees and a few structures with roof damage in the area. No injuries were reported.

The National Weather Service also confirmed a tornado hit Pensacola, Florida. The Pensacola News Journal reports that three buildings at an apartment complex were severely damaged and thousands in the region are without power.
