NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Three people are recovering from injuries from a tornado that plowed throw southern Louisiana, damaging
nearly two dozen homes.
Police say one woman was treated for a broken leg after she was struck by flying debris as she ran from her mobile home to her
mother's home. The two others have minor injuries.
The National Weather Service says the tornado was up to 100 yards wide when it hit the area about 140 miles northwest of New
Orleans.
The storms unleashed heavy rain, which caused flooding in areas including West Virginia. Every road except for one was closed in Roane County. The rains have flooded an ambulance parking lot and
knocked out power to thousands.
Sunday's storms are blamed for at least one death and possible tornados from Mississippi to Georgia. Emergency officials say at least 100 homes were damaged.
