US twisters claim more lives in the south


More tornadoes and ferocious storms have swept through southern states of the USA taking the number of dead over the last three days to more than 20.

The storms claimed lives in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Oklahoma and North Carolina, with major damage to property and several injuries in South Carolina and Texas too.

Some of those who endured the onslaught said the winds sounded like an express train passing by.

Forecasters say storm systems like this are not unusual for this time of year but they believe the worst is now over.

On average around 70 people die in the US during tornado season which runs from March to early July moving from south to north as the months progress.
