A deadly tornado has ripped through the US state of Mississippi leaving at least ten people dead.

It is believed at least two children are among those killed, while dozens more people have been left injured or had their homes reduced to rubble.

Reports from the US say the mile-wide tornado struck 13 counties, with the hardest hit Yazoo county. Rescuers, including workers from the American Red Cross, are now helping with the emergency response.

Four victims were flown by helicopter from Yazoo City to the University of Mississippi medical centre in Jackson, reports claim.

“The Central Mississippi chapter is opening a shelter and there are Emergency Response Vehicles, shelter supplies, and volunteers en route from Jackson and surrounding areas,” the Red Cross said in a statement.

Governor Haley Barbour said there was “utter obliteration” in Yazoo County, where three people are known to have died.

The National Weather Service (NWS) Storm Prediction Centre said on its website: “The NWS Storm Prediction Centre in Norman Oklahoma is forecasting the development of a few strong, long-track tornadoes over parts of the Mid-South, Central Gulf Coast States and Tennessee Valley this afternoon and evening. This is a particularly dangerous situation.”

10 tornadoes confirmed in Indiana

The weather service today confirmed at least 10 tornadoes touched down during the storm system that went through Indiana on Tuesday night.

Weather service meteorologist Adam Baker said a tornado with winds anywhere from 111 to 135 mph touched down in Tippecanoe County. Another weather service meteorologist, Dave Tucek, said that tornado caused damage on Tippecanoe County Road 500 South near Mayflower Mill Elementary School and in the nearby Red Oaks subdivision.

Another tornado with winds up to 110 mph was confirmed in west of Thorntown in Boone County.

A barn at Lawson’s Farm near Thorntown blew onto Ind. 47 at County Road 350 West, said Mike Martin, Boone County’s emergency management director. Four semi-trailer tractors trucks on I-65 were blown off the road, Martin said.

The weather service’s Louisville, Ky., office also had a list of confirmed tornadoes in southern Indiana: two in Clark County, one in Scott County, one in Harrison County,

The weather service office in Syracuse, Ind., reported two tornadoes — one near Fairmount and another near Upland — in Grant County, and two weaker tornadoes — one between Adamsboro and Twelve Mile, and another about 5 miles northeast of it.

National Weather Service teams were planning to continue surveying damage on Thursday to determine whether any other tornadoes touched down in Indiana, Baker said. Surveys should be completed in the next two days.

Duke Energy had more than 20,000 customers without power early Wednesday evening. More than half were in southern Indiana. Other utilities serving southern Indiana reported smaller outages.

Earlier today: Heavy winds punch hard at Boone County

The National Weather Service reported winds reaching 80 mph in some parts of the state, damaging trees, power lines, barns and trucks.

Boone County was one of the hardest hit areas. A barn at Lawson’s Farm near Thornton blew onto Ind. 47 at County Road 350 West , said Mike Martin, director of emergency management for Boone County.

Winds damaged a home at 4248 N. County Road 600 South, and a house caught on fire at 4990 E. County Road 750 South near Zionsville.

Four semi-trailer tractors trucks on I-65 were blown off the road, Martin said.

The storm knocked out communications in Clinton and Montgomery counties, and Boone County dispatchers handled their 911 calls, Martin said.

A weather service investigator will go to Boone this morning to see if the any tornadoes touched down.

“It sure looks like tornado damage but we would have to confirm it,” Martin said.

Weather service meteorologist John Kwiatowksi said damage was reported in several counties and the average winds at the height of the storm were between 60 and 70 mph.

Marion, Tippecanoe, Hendricks, Martin and Morgan counties were among those with toppled trees and downed power lines.

“There was some damage to structures and debris in the streets, probably from tress,” Kwiatowski said.

No tornadoes have been confirmed, though some people reported seeing some, Martin said.

High water is also a problem in metro Indianapolis.

Much of Central Indiana is under a flood warning until 12:30 pm. Thursday. Marion, Hendricks, Hancock, Johnson, Morgan and Shelby counties are included in the warning.

The National Weather Service says some areas of central and southern Indiana received nearly 5 inches of rain late Monday through Tuesday afternoon. It says significant river flooding will occur later this week south of Interstate 70.

Tornadoes Sweep Across the South

Apr 18, 2011 | 5

A powerful storm system that started in Oklahoma last Thursday blew through the southern United States over the weekend, spawning nearly 250 reported tornadoes, damaging thousands of structures, and claiming at least 45 lives across six states. Parts of North Carolina were particularly hard-hit by at least 60 tornadoes — one of which destroyed a Lowe’s hardware store with more than 100 employees and customers inside, all of whom survived. The storm system also brought flash flooding and large hailstorms, damaging roads, downing power lines and cell-phone towers, and hampering rescue and clean-up efforts. Gathered here are images of the destruction. [32 photos]
