/ Source: The Associated Press

Three tornadoes barreled through east central Alabama, destroying one church and damaging another over the weekend. Ten homes and a school were also torn up by the twisters.

The National Weather Service says the system has snapped or ripped hundreds of trees from the ground and flipped an 18-wheeler. The semi came to rest in the highway's median.

There have been several minor injuries reported.

A Salem church was destroyed by the storm.

Tornado warnings for parts of central Georgia and South Carolina were also issued early Sunday.
