Tornado destroys city in southern U.S.

Saturday, March 3, 2012

A tornado has virtually obliterated the town of Marysville, Indiana, in the southern U.S., reports American media, with reference to local authorities. In addition to Indiana, the elements targeted Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama and Ohio. There have been no reports of deaths or injuries.

“Debris litters the streets, many roofs have been torn down, it is impossible to pass through the streets, obstructed with fallen trees. Public utilities are trying to get the situation under control,” said a rescue team representative of one of the counties in Tennessee.

Thousands of homes have been left without electricity – in most American cities they have outside electrical wires that are torn by strong gusts of wind.

The hurricane has seriously damaged a maximum security prison in Alabama, but the situation there is under control.

The southern states – the poorest region of the U.S. – are forced to bear the onslaught of repeated natural disasters.
