Tornadoes have ravaged the South and Midwest, destroying homes, claiming lives, tearing roofs from schools, damaging a maximum security prison and wiping one Indiana town entirely off the map.

Authorities reported a total of 28 deaths, including 14 in Indiana, where the town Henryville suffered extensive damage including felled trees, wrecked homes and a destroyed high school.

The nearby town of Marysville – home to 1,900 residents – is ‘completely gone’, according to Clark County Sheriff’s Department Major Chuck Adams, and multiple injuries have been reported.

In Henryville, helicopter images show debris-littered homes, uprooted trees and cars dented by baseball-sized hail. Scores of people are still unaccounted for across the state.

As night fell, residents shuffled through the town, some searching for relatives, while rescue workers trawled rubble for survivors. Without power, the only light came from cars crawling along the streets.

‘We knew this was coming. We were watching the weather like everyone else,’ said Sheriff Danny Rodden. ‘This was the worst case scenario. There’s no way you can prepare for something like this.’

There have also been nine deaths in Kentucky. The bodies of two men and two women were found in three separate residences he described as ‘flattened’, Laurel County Coroner Doug Bowling said.

Friday’s tornadoes – which come two days after storms killed 13 people in the Midwest and South – were part of a series of at least 51 reported across seven states. It brings the week’s total to 103.

Dozens of homes, businesses, schools and vehicles were also flattened or damaged across Kentucky, Alabama and Tennessee. Anxiety mounted from Georgia to southern Ohio across a wide swath where forecasters said severe weather could hit later in the day.

Thousands of schoolchildren in several states were sent home as a precaution. Meanwhile, residents in parts of Illinois hit hard by storms earlier in the week salvaged what they could from damaged homes.

In the Huntsville, Alabama area, five people were taken to hospitals, and several houses were leveled by what authorities believed were tornadoes this morning.
