Photos Houses reduced to matchsticks as tornados tear through US

Fresh storms hit Mississippi and the US Southeast Monday, threatening tens of millions of people a day after tornadoes killed 17 and ripped up homes in nearby states. In the hardest-hit parts of Arkansas, emergency crews intensified their search for survivors, as residents of the close-knit community of Vilonia surveyed the damage. The tornados crushed large trucks like empty cans, homes were violently ripped in half, and entire residential blocks were reduced to rubble. Some homes were uprooted from their foundations. In Iowa, the tornado also dumped heavy rain, snapped trees and lifted the roof off a medical center in the town of Oskaloosa. #US #Iowa #ImagesOfTheDay #Natural Disaster #Tornado #storms #Arkansas #Vilonia
