The US authorities announced Saturday that the storms that swept through the southern United States killed at least two people and injured others due to strong winds that knocked down trees, destroyed homes and overturned vehicles.

Millions of people live in storm tracks along the Gulf Coast in the southeast, including Florida, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, where the two deaths have been reported.

Local authorities said that a man was killed and at least seven people were injured when strong winds blew in Saint-Landry Parish, overturning some vehicles on a road.

A tree fell as a result of strong winds that hit Kado Barish on Friday, partially destroying a caravan, killing a 48-year-old man, according to the district sheriff's office.

Large hailstones were reported to have fallen off the Alabama coast, some the size of baseballs, according to the National Weather Service.
