Southern America storms claim at least 350 lives
May 4th, 2011 by elisa

Last week around 362 twisters swept through southern America in just three days. At least 350 people have died as a result of this, the largest outbreak of tornadoes in history, according the National Weather Service.

312 tornadoes whipped across Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana and Kentucky in a single 24 hour period. The death toll continues to rise as emergency workers pick through the debris in the south-east states. A state of emergency has been declared in seven states.

According to Bloomberg, high winds and thunderstorms have caused flight disruption in key US airports, including New York and Atlanta, with more than 500 flights cancelled across the US last week.

Nearly 50 people were killed two weeks ago when storms ripped through US states from Oklahoma to North Carolina.
