Delta had 35 mph winds as of 10 a.m. CDT, according to the National Hurricane Center.
The center of the storm was 65 miles north-northwest of Jackson, Miss., as of the latest update, but severe storms and rain have spread far inland over the South, including Alabama, which was dealing with severe weather on Saturday morning and could see more through the day.
