According to reports, it was a single large twister which touched down in Mississippi that caused most damage.

It reportedly carved a path of destruction more than 160 kilometres long to Tennessee, destroying as many as 20 homes and leaving as many as 13 people dead, including a seven-year-old boy.

A fourteenth body was reportedly found in Arkansas.

Scores more have been left injured.

Meteorologists say unseasonably high temperatures contributed to the storm’s severity.
