ATLANTA (AP) -- Weather officials say a line of severe storms that ripped through four states Tuesday has moved into Georgia.

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch until 2 p.m. for counties in the north, middle and west portions of the state. Areas may experience heavy rain and thunderstorms.

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency officials postponed until Friday a statewide tornado drill they had planned for Wednesday, because of the severe weather.

The storms that tore through the South at the end of yesterday's Super Tuesday primaries are being blamed for deaths in Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky and Alabama.
