The last couple of days have been full of severe weather outbreaks with devastating tornado activity across the Central United States, Mid-West and Plains regions. A severe weather warning for 70 million people was ordered with more tornado activity anticipated in the coming days.
The states of Mississippi, Alabama and Kansas have been rocked with widespread destruction and several deaths. According to Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe, the storm was one of the worst to hit the state in recent memory.
Let’s take a look at some of the destruction caused by these tornadoes:
