Monday's storms spawned tornadoes across northeast Alabama, damaged homes and structures at Jacksonville State University, left some 10,000 customers without power, according to the Birmingham News, and required the closing of several roads and neighborhood, restricting the neighborhoods to people with IDs proving local residency.

Forecasters had warned that the storms would threaten more than 29 million people, raising the risk of powerful tornadoes, damaging winds and hail the size of tennis balls.

The severe weather is expected to continue into Tuesday, with the end of the cold front bringing damaging winds and potential tornadoes across northern and central Florida, southeastern Georgia, the low country of SC and eastern North Carolina, forecasters said.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop west of I-95 before 2 p.m. - quickly becoming strong to severe and moving northeastward between 30 and 50 miles per hour.

The storms marched eastward into Georgia during the overnight hours, and serious damage was reported to homes in a neighborhood in Fairburn, about 20 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta.

The National Weather Center's prediction for today projects a potential for severe and damaging weather onto the entirety of Flagler. Alabama Power Co. said more than 9,000 homes and businesses were without electricity, the AP reported.

The National Weather Service says crews are assessing storm damage across Alabama following a night of violent weather. Dense fog shrouded some areas at daybreak.

School officials said major damage was done to the roof of the school's 3,500-seat coliseum.

The area around Jacksonville State University was among the hardest hit as storms swept across the South, part of a large system that prompted tornado warnings Monday in Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia.
