The number of tornadoes will almost certainly climb today, with damage assessments scheduled for multiple hard-hit central and south Alabama communities and damage spread across much of the state.

The weather service in Birmingham said it is sending out multiple survey teams across central Alabama today.

Areas that will be surveyed include Selma in Dallas County as well as Autauga County, where at least seven people were killed on Thursday.

The weather service also plans to look at damage in Sumter, Greene, Hale and Winston counties. Those areas were all under tornado warnings at some point on Thursday.

Other areas that have reported storm damage are in Tuscaloosa, Perry, Bibb, Elmore, Coosa, Tallapoosa, Chambers and Barbour counties.

South Alabama had its share of storm damage as well. The National Weather Service in Mobile said two teams will assess damage in northern Mobile County as well as Conecuh and Crenshaw counties.

Included in the death toll is a 5-year-old.
