Central, southern and eastern parts of the United States are reeling after a fierce storm system brought torrential rain and tornadoes, leaving at least 16 people dead.

Hundreds of roads were closed in Missouri, one of the worst hit states, where the dead included a 72-year-old woman swept away by high waters, and two men aged 18 and 77 who drowned in separate incidents.
