Tornados kills 17 in U.S.

Tornados kills 17 in U.S.

At least 17 people have been killed after several tornadoes rocked the South Eastern coast of the U.S. The deadly weather system was part of a larger line of thunder and snowstorms that stretched from Minnesota to the Gulf Coast.

One tornado ripped through a school building in Enterprise, Alabama, killing at least five people, while another hit a hospital in Georgia, killing two. 
A twister was also to blame for the death of a 7-year-old girl in her family home in Missouri.

The National Weather Service says parts of Alabama and Georgia remain under threat from further tornadoes.
The U.S. Federal Government is preparing a rescue effort to all areas affected by the storms.
