This is what remains after a ferocious storm that "sounded like a roar, like the devil" ripped through eastern Alabama, Sunday, before carving its way across the state line into Georgia.
Residents said they had little time to get to safety - taking shelter wherever they could. Some even balled up behind a refrigerator.

Here are some of the most striking images.
The cleanup is ongoing in central Georgia. If you'd like to help storm victims, here's a guide on how to do so.
