A tornado has hit southern parts of the US state of Georgia, killing 11 people.

The US National Weather Service is warning there could be more tornado activity throughout the day across Georgia, Florida and South Carolina.

This follows on from four tornado-related deaths which occurred in Mississippi on Saturday morning.

New tornado watches have also been issued this morning for the Panhandle of Florida and Southern Alabama.

 


Seven of those killed were at a mobile home park in Cook County. At least 23 other people in the state of Georgia are said to have been injured after the tornado.
