More than 30 people have been killed by a series of tornadoes across the American South since Sunday.

The states of Arkansas and Mississippi have been hardest hit with hundreds injured, neighborhoods flattened, homes reduced to splinters and trees snapped like twigs.

Tornadoes have also knocked out power to tens of thousands across several states.

Forecasters were calling for more severe conditions today especially near the U.S. Gulf Coast.
