US tornadoes: Drone footage shows devastation in Arkansas

Aerial footage captured by a drone shows the devastation left by a tornado that struck a highway south of Mayflower, Arkansas.

At least 17 people were killed when a huge storm system swept across the central and southern United States.

Sixteen died in suburbs of Little Rock, the state capital and largest city in Arkansas, officials said.
