Devastating tornadoes have swept across cities and towns in the Midwest and South Central parts of the US since Sunday. The death toll results has already reached 18. Numerous twisters have targeted Mississippi.
According to the Storm Prediction Center, this is the very first time that the country has experienced “back to back” days of high risk. The last time such similar situations transpired were way back in May 2011. The complacency observed in some of the most affected regions may have been caused by the seemingly quiet start of the tornado season. However, most were warned to give way for preparation.
Here are some of the heart-wrenching and awesome images left in the tornadoes wake particularly in Kansas and Arkansas. Images courtesty of Associated Press (Wesley Hitt, Orlin Wagner, Christina Huynh, Danny Johnston).
