A storm system is sweeping across the central and southern US, bringing tornadoes and wind gusts that ripped roofs from barns and hurled trees into power lines, leaving thousands without power.
Officials said at least two people were killed Saturday. A man died after his mobile home overturned in northern Mississippi and another man was killed when his car hit a tree that had fallen across a county road in southeastern Mississippi. Jasper County Coroner Randy Graham says a woman who was in the car was critically injured. (AP)
