Almost a week’s worth of stormy weather in the US has left at least 18 people dead and a trail of destruction.

Tornadoes have swept through Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas and Birmingham.

Unseasonably warm weather has helped spawn the extreme weather, which left dozens of families homeless by Thursday, Christmas Eve.

It does not appear to be over yet, with another round of rain forecast for Monday night.
