INDIANAPOLIS - The latest in a series of powerful tornadoes raked across a broad swath of the US Midwest and Southeast, killing at least 33 people in four states, authorities said on Saturday.

The fast-moving twisters on Friday splintered homes, damaged a prison and tossed around vehicles across the region, leaving 16 people dead in Kentucky, 14 in neighboring Indiana, two more in Ohio, and one in Alabama, officials said.
