An unusual outbreak of December tornadoes caused by an unseasonably warm weather hit the Southeast of America from Arkansas to Michigan, killing at least 14 people in three states on Wednesday.

Dozens more were injured, and the authorities are still searching for people that are still missing.

Authorities confirmed seven deaths in Mississippi, six in Tennessee and one person in Arkansas.

Vehicles and debris scattered around the land after the massive disaster which flattened houses and trees.

Last year, tornadoes hit Mississippi, killing five and injuring dozens more.

AP reported that storms continued marching east on Thursday, dumping torrential rain that flooded roads in Alabama and caused a mudslide in the mountains of Georgia.

At least 21 people were killed after ferocious storms and tornadoes tore down buildings and causing mass destruction in the southern United States.

Hundreds others were injured.

Most of the deaths occurred on Sunday after tornadoes hit Arkansas and other states.

Monday’s twister in Tupelo, one of several to tear across Mississippi, damaged hundreds of homes and businesses, downed power lines and tore up trees, the National Weather Service said.

After the Monday’s tornado in Tulopo, officials imposed an 8 p.m. (0100 GMT) curfew and in some residential areas were closed off as emergency crews checked downed power lines and gas leaks.

The storm system later pushed into parts of Alabama, where emergency officials said at least two people were killed at a trailer park near Athens, Alabama. 

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe said at least 15 people had died statewide in the storm. 

Nine of the victims on Sunday came from the same street in Vilonia, a town with a population of about 4,100.

State authorities reported that one person was killed in Oklahoma, one in Iowa and another one in Kansas,

The National Weather Service said the threat of tornadoes will last for several days as a strong weather system interacts with a large area of unstable air across the central and southern United States.

According to AP News, The National Weather Service posted tornado watches and warnings around Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia that were in effect through Monday night.

Here are some photos of the aftermath…

The Great Mississippi River Flooding – Will The Morganza Spillway Be Opened?

13 05 2011

The Morganza Spillway may be opened to protect Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas from great flooding.

(The floodgate of the Morganza Spillway is now opened, please click here for my new post and pictures).

If this happened the Cajun country, Louisiana will be flooded up to 15 feet of water from Mississippi River flooding.

On May 2, 2011 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers had blew 2 huge holes in the Birds Point levee in Mississippi County, Missouri to protect places where there are more people living from great flooding.

130,000 acres of farmland was then flooded when the water rushed in from the hole in the levee.

It must be very sad for the people who are living in the area where it will be badly flooded because of the action.

People are told to move and the government is trying to do whatever they can to save the place.

The great Mississippi River flooding is a great disaster and it is very sad when there had to be man-made disasters together with the natural disaster.

The U.S. government scrambled to shore up the levee system in the Deep South on Thursday to prevent the mighty Mississippi River from overflowing and flooding populated areas.
