MSNBC.COM - As tornado-hit communities searched for victims and removed debris on Saturday, they also got word that their misery isn't over: A cold front moving in from the north is likely to dump snow on the hardest hit regions on Sunday, the National Weather Service said in an alert.

A mix of rain and snow will "quickly change over to all snow late Sunday night," the service warned, in parts of Indiana and Kentucky, where tens of thousands were without power after Friday's twisters that killed more than 30 people, injured hundreds and destroyed or damaged hundreds of homes.

Temperatures by Sunday night in places like hard-hit Henryville, Ind., are likely to dip below 30 degrees F, a problem for anyone without heat.

On Saturday, several small twisters were reported in southeast Georgia that took down trees but caused no injuries. Parts of northern Florida were under a tornado watch.

Friday's twisters crushed entire blocks of homes, ripped power lines from broken poles and tossed cars, school buses and tractor-trailers onto roadways.

"It's all gone," Andy Bell said of a neighborhood in Henryville, as he guarded a friend's demolished service garage, not far from where a school bus stuck out from the side of a restaurant and a parking lot where a small classroom chair jutted from a car window.

"It was beautiful," he said, looking around. "And now it's just gone. I mean, gone."

Most of the dead were in Kentucky and Indiana, where the scale of the devastation made an immediate assessment impossible. Ohio saw three deaths, while Alabama and Georgia saw one each.

In Kentucky, where some 300 people were injured and 17,000 lost power, the National Guard and state police searched wreckage for an unknown number of missing.

In Indiana, authorities searched rural communities that officials said "are completely gone."

One person was known to have died in hard-hit Henryville, a town of about 2,000 near Louisville, Ky., and the birthplace of Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Col. Harland Sanders. click here to read more
