(CNN) -- Severe storms ripped through parts of the South on Wednesday, cutting a path of destruction from Texas to Tennessee that left at least 31 people dead in the region and damaged an untold number of homes and businesses, authorities said.
Even as officials assessed damage across the region, forecasters said another powerful storm packing high winds and the possibility of tornadoes was bearing down on portions of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and eastern Tennessee
There were reports of three brief possible tornadoes from two communities southwest of Kitchener as well as Fergus. Moderate damage was reported at the Zellers and Canadian Tire in Fergus. “There have been some tree tops that ripped off and in the back of the Zellers building some of the siding has been torn off,” said Dave Patrick of ontarioweather.com. Patrick adds that people at the Canadian Tire also noticed the winds getting stronger and stronger and then things just started to break and tear.
The city of Toronto, for example, has seen over 80 mm of rain this April, compared to the normal 62.4 mm for the entire month.
