LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ala. - Authorities confirm two people are dead after Monday's severe storms moved through the Tennessee Valley.

Town Creek Chief of Police Jerry Garret said 2 people were killed and at least 4 or 5 people were injured on County Road 265.

"What I know now, facts, we have two fatalities confirmed and at least four or five injured," said Chief Garret. "Not sure how serious those injuries are right now. Everyone is accounted for that we know of at the moment. We have not conducted a door to door search at the moment but as soon as we finish with this, that's what's gonna happen next."

"County Road 265 was blocked with tree and debris, uh, so it was just total chaos. We just had to make due the best we could," said Lawrence County Coroner Scott Norwood.

'I can't say officials right now but it looks like it was and uh so we'll know more as soon as we find out we'll let everybody know," said Lawrence County Emergency Management Director Johnny Cantrell.

"We're thankful, we're blessed. You know in the public safety realm, you know, when disaster strikes, no matter what the differences are we all come together and we work together as one."
