Deaths have been reported in Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia and Indiana.  One of the tornadoes tore through the town of Marysville, IN about 20 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky, causing extensive damage.

State officials say the state prison in Limestone County was also struck. The weather has been particularly violent with Government forecasters issuing tornado warnings with the words ‘take cover now’. It comes days after storms elsewhere in the South killed two people.
