Tennessee state was hardest hit, with tornadoes striking five counties on Sunday, the National Weather Service said. Most of the state's 19 deaths were reported along one 25-mile path, from Newbern east to Bradford. The Highway Patrol sent teams to the area Monday with search dogs. Severe thunderstorms, many producing tornadoes, also struck parts of Iowa, Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois and Indiana. Strong wind was blamed for at least three deaths in Missouri. A clothing store collapsed in southern Illinois, killing one man. Tennessee officials estimated that 1,200 buildings were damaged in one of the counties.
