The death toll from this week's storms continues to cimb. As many as 28 people are confirmed dead after storms ripped through the midwest and the south yesterday.

An emergency management official says two additional deaths have been reported in southern Tennessee from a storm system that's spawned deadly tornadoes as it moves across the South.

Lincoln County's emergency management director tells The Associated Press two people were killed in a home when a suspected tornado hit last night.

At least 11 people in the South died in the storms yesterday and overnight.
