Tornado leaves New Orleans neighbourhood in ruins, killing one

NEW ORLEANS (REUTERS) - Crews were assessing the damage on Wednesday (March 23) on the east side of New Orleans where a powerful tornado killed at least one person and injured eight others as it left a two-mile (3.2km) path of destroyed homes, uprooted power lines and overturned vehicles.

A dark funnel cloud touched down at 7.30pm Tuesday (8.30am Singapore time Wednesday), flattening buildings and flipping over vehicles in the Arabi area of St. Bernard Parish.

A spokesperson for the parish, just east of downtown New Orleans, said first responders found a 26-year-old man dead near his home.
