COOK COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - Cook County deputies have released the names of the seven people that died after a tornado wrecked havoc through their mobile home park this weekend.

The dead were identified as five females and two males, their ages ranging from 18 to 62 years old.

Authorities say the weekend storm toll remains at 7 killed in the south Georgia mobile home community of Sunshine Acres, adding cadaver dogs have gone repeatedly over the wreckage and found no additional victims.

According to ABC affiliate WALB News 10, Alexis Livingston, 18, Jamie Cantrell Walters, 33, Mary Cantrell, 62, Adreian Mays, 38, Lawansa Perry, 41, Amanda Rowe, 41, and Joe Deskins, 36, all died in the storm.

Lamar Ray, emergency management director, in Cook County says he doesn't expect the toll to rise.

He says property owners will be allowed back tomorrow morning to see their destroyed and damaged homes - if they are considered safe.
