(NBC News) At least 17 people are dead and hundreds of homes destroyed following a deadly night of tornados from Oklahoma to Arkansas.
Arkansas was hardest hit. At least 16 people there were killed and dozens more injured. Ten fatalities were reported in Falton County, where crews continue to search for survivors.
"We've got people and dogs going through the rubble and trying to find whoever we can, and whatever we can," says Falton County Public Information Officer David Hogue.
