LOUISVILLE, Miss. — At least 30 deaths have been reported from a large, stubborn storm system making its way through the South after pummeling the central U.S.

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.

Tennessee officials say two people died in a home when a suspected tornado hit Monday night.

On Sunday, 15 were killed as a tornado carved an 80-mile path through the suburbs of Little Rock. One person also died in Oklahoma, and one in Iowa.
