Deadly Tornadoes sweep South US

Tornadoes and thunderstorms ravaged several states in the South of US, killing at least 31 people, injuring dozens and causing widespread damage. The Tornadoes raged across the nation's midsection at the end of the Super Tuesday primaries in several states. As the extent of the damage quickly became clear, candidates including Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and Mike Huckabee paused in their victory speeches to remember the victims.

The storms caused widespread damage across Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi and Alabama. The dead included 13 people in Tennessee, 11 in Arkansas, and seven in Kentucky. Authorities went door-to-door early Wednesday searching for more victims of deadly tornadoes. via Reuters and AP
