Dozens of Tornadoes Attack Five Southern States, Killing at least 23 People

States of Emergency declared in Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Georgia as up to 52 tornadoes swoop across the southern U.S.,  leaving trails of death and destruction in AL, MS, TN, GA and KY.

At least 23 people were killed in Alabama and Mississippi after tornadoes struck Monday evening. The  total number of fatalities are not yet confirmed.

The tornado attack follows another round deadly strike by twisters Sunday evening, spawned by the same massive storm system, which left more than two dozen people dead in Arkansas, Iowa and Oklahoma.

The extent of damage in Tupelo, Mississippi, was described as “devastating” by the mayor, after a tornado tore through the city, destroying or damaging hundreds of homes and businesses.

“It’s a very serious situation … I am just encouraging everyone to stay inside and be weather aware. There is still a very real danger of another line coming through and people still need to be inside,” said Tupelo Mayor.
