Rescuers uncovered widespread damage in Alabama caused by two back-to-back tornadoes that ripped across the southern-state, with the death toll of 23 expected to rise further. "It looks almost as if someone took a giant knife and scraped the ground," said Sheriff Jay Jones of Lee County, which borders Georgia. "There are slabs where homes formerly stood, there is debris everywhere, trees are snapped."
