Authorities in central North Carolina are searching the wreckage caused by a reported tornado that killed one person and injured three others.

A possible tornado touched down on the outskirts of Greensboro late Thursday as severe storms swept across the Southeast, damaging homes and businesses in at least five other states.

Officials say one person in a small truck was killed after the vehicle was overturned in a parking lot west of Greensboro.

Yesterday, an apparent tornado also wrecked a shopping area in Mississippi and strong winds flipped a mobile home in Alabama. In south-central Tennessee, at least four homes and a few barns were damaged.

Up to 60 homes were damaged in northeastern Virginia from what may have been a tornado. Portions of Virginia and Maryland are under a flood warning this morning.
