CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A week after deadly tornadoes hit Alabama, 25 million people are under the threat of severe weather across the Deep South.  

Suspected tornadoes have already hit parts of Louisiana and Arkansas, and the threat continues to the East. 

About 25 million people were at risk Saturday. Sunday, the Southeast is wrapped into the threat and parts of the Eastern Carolinas under a low risk for severe weather.
