Tropical Depression Claudette claimed 12 lives in Alabama, as the storm swept across the south-eastern US, causing flash flooding and spurring tornadoes that destroyed dozens of homes.
Ten people, including nine children, were killed on Saturday in a 15-vehicle crash about 55 kilometers south of Montgomery on Interstate 65, according to Butler County Coroner Wayne Garlock.
He said the vehicles likely hydroplaned on wet roads, with eight children, ages four to 17, killed in a van belonging to a youth ranch operated by the Alabama Sheriffs Association for abused or neglected children.
