High winds are causing power outages for parts of the Southeast and are responsible for the death of a teen in Tennessee and another person in Atlanta.

An Etowah teenager has been killed when a strong gust of wind blew a tree onto his family's home.

McMinn County Sheriff's Detective Jerry Wilson said the 18-year-old was still in bed when a tree fell onto the house around 6 a.m. ET Monday and a limb penetrated it, killing him.

The victim's name wasn't immediately released.

A wind advisory was issued Monday morning for East Tennessee and more stormy weather could develop in the central part of the state.

National Weather Service forecaster Bobby Boyd in Nashville said the main threat would be from damaging winds and hail from midday into Monday night, but said an isolated tornado was possible.

Atlanta Fire Rescue Department spokesman Capt. Bill May says one person was killed Monday when a tree fell on a car in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood. He didn't know the victim's name or age.

National Weather Service officials say the storm system is producing wind gusts of more than 55 mph, sending trees and branches crashing down on power lines. Georgia Power officials say at least 130,000 customers in metro Atlanta are without service.

Forecasters expect the hazardous weather could bring up to 3 inches of rain to north and middle Georgia, with flooding possible near rivers and creeks.

Another round of violent weather is expected Monday evening.

Strong storms that knocked down trees and power lines overnight left thousands of people without power across north Alabama.

Alabama Power Co. said about 158,000 customers were in the dark Monday morning because of damage that occurred from west Alabama through the Birmingham area. Winds gusted to more than 50 mph in some areas, causing widespread damage.

In north Alabama, the Guntersville and Scottsboro school systems closed because of storm damage and thousands of power outages. Another 12,000 customers were without electricity in Huntsville.

Severe weather also struck southeast Alabama, where damage from an apparent tornado damaged several rural structures. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
