Residents clean up after storms in South

PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Thousands of homes and businesses are without power and more than two dozen injured after storms and tornadoes in Georgia, Alabama and Florida.

Ten people are injured in Crawford County, Georgia, with two of them in critical condition. At least 14 homes have been destroyed in the area.

Meanwhile, rescue crews are going door-to-door in Prattville, Alabama, looking for people trapped in wreckage after a tornado blew through town. No fatalities have been reported but two people are critically injured. About 200 homes have been damaged or destroyed.

About 60 structures are damaged after a tornado blew through Escambia County in Florida. Residents are now working to clear debris, cover broken windows and spread tarps over roofs.

In the Midwest, freezing rain and snow forced schools, malls, libraries and churches to close.

Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama have postponed or canceled campaign stops in Wisconsin.
