PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- At least 37 deaths have been reported from a large, stubborn storm system making its way through the South after pummeling the central U.S.

On Wednesday, officials in Georgia reported one death in Athens. Police say winds pushed over a tree that crashed into a car, killing its driver at a mobile home park.

In Florida, with severe flooding in the Panhandle, the Highway Patrol said Wednesday that a woman who drove her car into high water died.

Those deaths brought the total from four days of storms to 37.

Mississippi and Arkansas saw the most fatalities, as well as the most destruction from violent tornadoes.

Deaths also were reported in Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Iowa.
