A sprawling storm system has brought havoc to a swathe of the US, leaving two people dead and thousands of households without electricity.

One person died when an apparent twister hit the state of Georgia, overturning cars on a motorway.

Bartow County Fire Chief Craig Millsap said at least 10 cars had been flipped over on Interstate 75.

A man died in Nashville, Tennessee, when high winds toppled a tree onto a shed he had been taking shelter in.
