BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - A violent storm has killed 14 people across northern Argentina, southern Brazil and Uruguay. Dozens were injured in the winds and hail as their homes were destroyed.
Authorities say at least 10 died in Argentina and four in Brazil as the storm spawned a tornado, blowing away roofs and leaving thousands without electricity.
The worst damage was in the small Argentine towns of Santa Rosa and El Progreso, where city officials say houses and even a city health center were blown away early Tuesday. Trees fell on cars, blown down by winds of more than 100 kilometers (60 miles) an hour.
