MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Robert Bentley says Alabama is seeking an emergency declaration from the Federal Emergency Management Agency after severe weather killed three people and caused damage in 19 counties.

At a news conference Tuesday in Montgomery, Bentley said two deaths occurred in Limestone County and one in Tuscaloosa County. He said the counties suffering the worst damage included Limestone, Jefferson, Walker and Tuscaloosa. Shelters to help storm victims are open in Limestone and Jefferson counties.

He noted that 65 community safe rooms built with federal funds after the deadly tornadoes in 2011 were used Monday night to keep people safe.

Bentley says he and his security team sought safety in the basement of the Governor's Mansion early Tuesday morning when a possible tornado passed over downtown Montgomery.
