A storm system is sweeping across the central and southern US, bringing tornadoes and wind gusts that ripped roofs from barns and hurled trees into power lines.

Officials said at least two people were killed on Saturday.

A man died after his mobile home overturned in northernm Mississippi and another man was killed when his car hit a tree that had fallen across a county road in southeastern Mississippi.

Jasper County Coroner Randy Graham says a woman who was in the car was critically injured.

Tens of thousands of people had their power knocked out.

In Arkansas, at least five people were injured and two dozen homes were damaged after two apparent tornadoes touched down.
