 Tornadoes swept across the Midwest and the South on Friday, hitting hardest in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio, where at least 28 people were killed. An entire town was flattened in Indiana, and homes and businesses were destroyed from Ohio to the Gulf Coast.

Fourteen people were killed in Indiana, 12 died in Kentucky and two people were killed in Ohio, said The Weather Channel on its website, weather.com. It wasn’t immediately clear how many people were missing.

The town of Marysville, Ind., population about 1,900, was “completely gone,” and Henryville Junior-Senior High School was destroyed, Clark County sheriff’s Maj. Chuck Adams told NBC News. All the students escaped, some with minor scrapes, Adams said.
