In photos: Deadly tornadoes leave path of destruction across the South
A major outbreak of high-end, "violent" tornadoes and severe storms ripped through the South on Thursday, leaving behind debris and destruction.
The big picture: At least six people were killed. Severe weather in this region can be especially deadly due to the housing types that are prevalent here, including large numbers of mobile homes, Axios' Andrew Freedman writes.
- In Alabama, the worst-hit state, a tornado killed at least five people and injured several others. At least one person died during the severe weather in Georgia, officials said.
- Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky and several states in the Midwest also experienced severe storms.
What to watch: More storms could hit the region in coming days.
