At least four people have been killed after powerful tornadoes swept through Indiana.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Gordon said the agency had “half a dozen reports of tornadoes on the ground” in multiple states and reports of “significant damage.”

Two reported twisters touched down in northeast Alabama, where residents were assessing damage to a high school and a prison.

In Tennessee, severe weather was responsible for critically injuring as many as eight people in the cities of Harrison and Oolteweh.
