13 killed by tornados

March 1, 2007 Reported by Associated Press

Alabama officials say at least 13 people have been killed, including eight at a high school, after apparent tornados plowed across the state.

Authorities in Enterprise say students are trapped under a collapsed roof, after an apparent twister hit the school. However, a state emergency management spokeswoman says it's not known if all of the victims killed at the school were students, or students and teachers.

More than 40 people have been taken to a hospital in the community. Meanwhile, a state lawmaker says five people have been killed in the rural community of Miller's Ferry after an apparent tornado hit mobile homes.

The violent storms are part of the same system that earlier spawned a tornado that killed a seven-year-old Missouri girl.
