Photos: Deadly tornadoes hit US Midwest states

Powerful tornadoes have swept through the US Midwest, destroying buildings and overturning vehicles in the states of Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky.

At least six people were killed, all in Illinois, and it is feared that several hundred people may have been injured in the fast-moving storms.

A number of people are feared trapped inside buildings.

The storm was so fast-moving
- with winds of up to 111km/h
(68mph) - that weather
services issued warnings for
people not to wait until they
saw the weather change. Forecasters said people in 10
states had been at risk.
