Alabama swamped, 4 killed in floods from slow-moving front
PELHAM, Ala. (AP) — The death toll from flash floods caused by torrential rains in Alabama has risen to four.
Forecasters say as much as 13 inches of rain from a slow-moving front covered roads, trapping people in cars and homes.
All four of the deaths occurred when water swept away vehicles, and the victims include a 4-year-old girl who died in northeast Alabama.
Flood watches and warnings remained in effect for parts of the Southeast.
Three feet of water filled a Piggly Wiggly grocery store near the Florida line, and 250,000 gallons of wastewater overflowed from sewage systems in Baldwin County.
