A radar map shows the path of the deadly storms

The death toll has risen to 55 in the US after devastating storms swept through five states; Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky, Alabama and Mississippi. The storms left widespread destruction but the true scale of devastation did not become clear until daybreak. Hundreds of buildings have been destroyed by an estimated 60 tornadoes which tore through the south-east of the United States. President George W Bush is set to visit the area on Friday [BBC / Sky News / CNN].
