High winds from a possible tornado have injured three people and damaged nearly two dozen homes in southern Louisiana.
The National Weather Service has sent a crew to investigate whether a tornado was responsible for the damage in Catahoula, which is about 140 miles northwest of New Orleans.
The latest bout of severe weather comes a day after major thunderstorms across the Southeast killed one person.
Storms also spread heavy rains that caused flooding today in West Virginia. Nearly 2 inches of rain in western parts of the state made roads impassable, washed out bridges, shut down schools and knocked out power to thousands.
