Deadly storms leave trails of destruction across southern and central U.S.
A massive storm system, described as “particularly dangerous,” packing high winds and spawning dozens of tornadoes, raked through the southern and central United States, killing about a dozen people and injuring dozens more.
SPC received hundreds of severe weather reports including 29 tornadoes, as of posting. Tornadoes, high wind and hail left trails of destruction across multiple states: Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
At least five people were killed in Mississippi, two in Tennessee and one in Arkansas, and dozens more injured across a large region spanning about 10 states, authorities said.
“The devastation is just unreal,” a police spokesman in Mississippi told reporters.
Deadly Tornadoes: State of Emergency Declared in Tennessee
Gov. Haslam approved the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency’s recommendation to go to a Level III State of Emergency, after storms moved across the state Wednesday night, killing at least two people.
At least four tornadoes touched down in Middle Tennessee, two in Wayne County, one in Perry County and one near the Smith/DeKalb County line, according to preliminary data received by the Storm Prediction Center (SPC).
“In Lutts, a lot of damage, some people trapped in a mobile home, some people trapped in a storm shelter, and houses and structural damage,” said Wayne County Sheriff. “We have a lot of injuries and we’re dispatching ambulances there now.”
SPC received hundreds of severe weather reports including 29 tornadoes (24 filtered), as of posting. Tornadoes left trails of destruction across multiple states: Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Illinois.
The storm system that produced the severe weather outbreak on Wednesday will continue to move east on Thursday, but has diminished in strength. Isolated severe thunderstorms will still be possible from the Mid-Atlantic to the Gulf Coast and lower Mississippi Valley, with a more concentrated threat across parts of Alabama and Georgia.
