Tornadoes tear up American Midwest

Henryville in southern Indiana USA, 02 Mar 2012 (AP)

Tornado season is well underway in the American Midwest after at least 40 people were killed in a series of vicious twisters.

The storms created a path of destruction in the states of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Alabama and Georgia.

“The damage I saw was the worst I’ve seen.  It was a war zone, debris everywhere, buildings destroyed, other buildings just the walls standing, roofs gone.  It was a terrible sight.”

Those words from Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear who described his visit to the tornado-ravaged town of West Liberty.
