Tornadoes tear through US

Up to 10 tornadoes have ripped across the southern United States.

Witnesses say one monster twister in Clarksdale, Mississippi stayed on the ground for 10 minutes, barrelling across farmland.

It flipped a truck and damaged homes.

It's been reported at least two people are missing in the storms so far and at least six have been killed across the states, including a seven-year-old boy who died when the car he was riding in was picked up and thrown by the storm.

A storm warning is in place in 10 southern states with more twisters forecast for Christmas Day.
