TANNER — Authorities in two regions of Alabama say exposure to cold weather likely contributed to the deaths of two women.

Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely told that 59-year-old Sonya Todd was dressed in a light sweater and sweat pants when she was found near a road in Tanner on Saturday.

Authorities in Phenix City, about 225 miles southeast of Tanner, say an elderly woman there also likely died because of exposure to the elements.

Russell County Coroner Arthur Sumbry Jr. told the Ledger-Enquirer of Columbus that a woman was found outside on Friday morning and was later pronounced dead at the Midtown Medical Center. Her identity has not yet been released.

Forecasters have issued several winter weather warnings ahead of a severe weather system moving into the region.
