In the US state of Alabama, nine children and one adult were killed in an accident that could have been triggered by bad weather, CNN reports.

The exact causes of the tragedy are not yet reported, but, according to the assumptions of journalists, a cyclone that hit the region could lead to an accident.

In the southeastern United States, tropical Depression Claudette is currently raging, which is expected to develop into a storm by Monday.

The tragedy is not the first such case in this area, the agency adds, citing data from the newspaper Tuscaloosa News. The publication previously wrote about another incident related to bad weather, when a 24-year-old man and his three-year-old son were killed as a result of a falling tree.
