Severe storms sweep through, killing at least 6; tornadoes touch down in Mississippi, Indiana

 


HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. — A storm system forecasters called "particularly dangerous" killed at least six people as it swept across the country Wednesday, and officials were searching for missing residents into the night.

Tornadoes touched down in Indiana and Mississippi, where three were killed. The springlike storms packing strong winds killed two more in Tennessee.

A tree blew over onto a house in Arkansas, killing an 18-year-old woman and trapping a 1-year-old child inside, authorities said. Rescuers pulled the toddler safely from the home.
