Officials in Jackson County, Ala., say one person was killed on Sand Mountain during this morning storms.

Officials with the Jackson County Emergency Management Agency said details were sparse, but confirmed one "weather related" fatality in the Pisgah community on the mountain.

Jackson County EMA Assistant Director Mike Ashburn said the death was not traffic-related, but was unsure whether it occurred in a house or mobile home.

More details would be available this afternoon, he said.

Other emergency officials deferred to the EMA and attempts to reach the county coroner were not immediately successful.
