Tornadoes strike southern US, Killing at least 6
A storm system forecasters called “particularly dangerous” killed at least six people Wednesday as it swept across the US.
Tornadoes touched down in Indiana and Mississippi, where three were killed.
A tree blew over onto a house in Arkansas, killing an 18-year-old woman and trapping her 1 1⁄2-year-old sister inside, authorities said. Rescuers pulled the toddler safely from the home.
Most authorities in Mississippi did not have details of those dead after multiple tornadoes hit the state.
In Benton County, where one death occurred, search-and-rescue crews were doing a house-by-house search to make sure residents were accounted for.
Marshall County Coroner James Anderson said a 7-year-old boy was killed in a van on Highway 7 as severe weather swept through the town of Holly Springs.
A tornado damaged or destroyed at least 20 homes in the northwest part of the state. Clarksdale Mayor Bill Luckett said the only confirmed casualty was a dog killed by storm debris. Planes at a small airport overturned and an unknown number of people were injured.
“I’m looking at some horrific damage right now,” the mayor said.
