Tennessee emergency management officials said in a statement Thursday night that three more people in the state were confirmed dead in the storms. The statement describes the victims as a 19-year-old female and two 22-year-old males. Officials say they died in Maury County. The statement says no further details are available.
    
The latest deaths bring the total killed in the Tennessee storms to six. One person died in Arkansas and seven died in Mississippi.
