UNDATED (AP) — Indiana authorities say at least three people have been killed by tornadoes that struck the southern portion of the state.

Officials say houses are missing near the small town of Chelsea, Ky. And the National Weather Service says there has been "extreme damage" in Henryville, a town of about 1,000 people just north of the Kentucky border. A law enforcement official also says the town of Marysville is "completely gone."

Just to the east, in Kentucky, an apparent tornado flattened a volunteer fire station. Dozens of homes were damaged in Alabama and Tennessee.

The violent weather struck two days after storms killed 13 people in the Midwest and South.

In the Chattanooga, Tenn., area, at least 20 homes were badly damaged and six people were hospitalized after strong winds and hail lashed the area.
