Killer tornado strikes Louisiana

Severe thunderstorms developed along the central Gulf Coast states on Saturday producing widespread wind, hail and heavy rain.

A few tornadoes were also reported - unfortunately - one was a killer.

The estimated tornado rating is at least an EF-2 and it was on the ground several miles, crossing Interstate 10 and hitting the small town of Rayne.

The twister damaged dozens of homes and killed a 21-year-old woman when a tree fell through her house.
