DISASTER

Southern Storms Kill More Than 30

A rescue effort continues in the South and the Midwest after fast-moving tornadoes and severe thunderstorms tore through the regions on Friday and early Saturday morning, leaving at least 39 dead and hundreds others injured. The National Weather Service estimated that 34 million people were at risk during the wide-ranging storms, which saw winds at speeds of up to 200 mph. A state of emergency has been declared in Kentucky and Indiana, where the tiny town of Marysville was completely flattened by a twister. A baby girl found alone in a field in Indiana is in critical condition and being treated in a Kentucky hospital. Authorities do not know how she ended up in the field, roughly ten miles away north of her home.
