With spring in full swing, that means rain and the potential for hazardous weather such as the line of thunderstorms that came through the south on Thursday, June 5, reportedly leading to the deaths of at least three people.
Georgia was in the path of the storms as were Alabama and South Dakota, where a tornado reportedly touched down outside of Sioux Falls.
In Arkansas, two people were killed as strong winds toppled trees, a not too distant reminder of the recent death of an Athens man who was killed when a tree fell onto his vehicle due to high winds.
Pedro Gerosquieta, 39, left behind a wife and five children when the fatal storm hit the Pinewood Estates North mobile home park on April 30.
In southern Tennessee a man reportedly died Thursday morning when his vehicle was swept downstream as he tried to cross a flooded road.
A number of homes and businesses in Arkansas were reportedly damaged as a result of the storms and strong winds blew over a freight train.
