A powerful severe storm system moved across the United States on Friday, with a slew of apparent tornadoes from Alabama to Indiana contributing to at least four deaths and threatening even more destruction as the day wore on.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Gordon reported Friday afternoon the agency has about “half a dozen reports of tornadoes on the ground,” as well as reports of “significant damage” — stressing all the while that the worst may still be to come.

As of 6 p.m. ET, the weather service had 21 active tornado warnings, plus less urgent tornado watches that spanned 11 states.

“This is an enormous outbreak that’s going on right now across Kentucky and the South,” Gordon said. “It’s crazy. It’s just nuts right here.”

Powerful storms stretching from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes flattened buildings in several states, wrecked a small Indiana town where officials say at least three were killed, and bred anxiety across a wide swath of the country in the second powerful tornado outbreak this week.

Widespread damage was reported in southern Indiana, where Clark County Sheriff’s Department Maj. Chuck Adams said the town of Marysville is “completely gone.”

Indiana Department of Homeland Security Spokesman John Erickson confirms three deaths in Jefferson County.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department dispatcher Shelly Jones says houses are missing near the unincorporated town of Chelsea.

Dozens of houses were also damaged in Alabama and Tennessee two days after storms killed 13 people in the Midwest and South.
