In Mississippi, officials say eight people died Monday, seven of them in hard-hit Winston County.

In Alabama, three people were reported dead, two in the northern part of the state and one in Tuscaloosa. There, officials say a University of Alabama student died Monday when he took shelter in the basement of a home near campus and a retaining wall collapsed on him.
