Severe storms ripped through parts of the South on Wednesday, cutting a path of destruction from Texas to Tennessee that left at least 31 people dead in the region and damaged an untold number of homes and businesses, authorities said.

Even as officials assessed damage across the region, forecasters said another powerful storm packing high winds and the possibility of tornadoes was bearing down on portions of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and eastern Tennessee.

“This has been a very serious and deadly event that’s affected our state, and it’s not over yet,” Alabama Gov. Robert Brantley told reporters Wednesday evening.
