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…

At the end of May 2013,  Jupiter, Venus and Mercury form a celestial triangle in the night sky.

The three planets shine together in a triangle formation low in the western sky in a planetary meet-up known as a conjunction.

We can even see them with naked eyes if the sky is clear and the place is not too bright.

This cosmic show is so special spectacular because it includes the three brightest planets visible in the May night sky.

Venus is the brightest of the trio, with Jupiter a close second and Mercury coming in third.

Flickr photographers snapped awesome photos of this very rare and special event.
