Death toll rises following severe US weather

At least 18 people have been killed as tornados wiped out entire

neighbourhoods in Arkansas.

Winds ripped houses off their foundations and flipped cars on top of

the rubble in the small town of

Vilonia in central Arkansas.

The fatalities are the first of this year's tornado season. At least

one person was killed in neighbouring Oklahoma.

Rescuers and homeowners continue digging through rubble.

Scott Barrier, a Vilonia resident said: "It took all of our trees. We

had a big motor home and moved it

into the house, busted out the windows."

The severe storm system continues pushing its way across the country.

People living in the Midwest and

South bracing themselves for severe hail, high winds and tornados.
