COPY-Tornadoes in parts of eastern U.S. cause scattered damage, injuries

UNDATED Unseasonably warm weather has brought severe storms to parts of the Midwest and South.

The temperature swings produced storms that spawned tornadoes and hail. The weather is blame for the death of a utility worker in Indiana.

Tornadoes were reported in Georgia and Kentucky. Three people were hospitalized with minor injuries about 50 miles south of Atlanta. In suburban Atlanta, at least seven houses were damaged or destroyed.

At least two tornadoes were reported in Kentucky. In Indiana, a storm caused scattered power failures. A utility worker died when a piece of equipment overturned on him as his crew worked about 20 miles east of Evansville.

Across the region, temperatures were more like April than January, hitting the 60's and 70s
