A late April tornado outbreak caused widespread destruction, including multiple deaths.

At least 30 people across six states have been killed by the vicious storm system that unleashed dozens of tornadoes and was threatening to cause more damage in heavily populated regions of the U.S. South on Tuesday.

The hardest hit states have been Arkansas and Mississippi where more than 200 injured by tornadoes over the past three days that have flattened neighborhoods, reduced homes to splinters and snapped trees like twigs.

Deaths were also reported in Oklahoma and Iowa on Sunday, and Alabama and Tennessee on Monday.
