US tornadoes kill five

WASHINGTON, Apr 15: Weekend tornadoes killed at least five people, including three children, in the US South, authorities said on Sunday, as a massive storm system with damaging wind and hail moved across the country and began drenching East Coast states.

A tornado touched down and spun toward Enigma, Georgia, on Sunday, after 17 twisters were reported on Saturday and earlier on Sunday across the South from Texas to Alabama.

Tornado watches were issued for most of West Virginia, most of North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland, Ohio and New York. The watches mean conditions are favourable for tornadoes to form.    -REUTERS
