Obama tours tornado zone in Alabama

Updated

Earlier today, President Obama met with Alabama Governor Robert Bentley as he toured the state. “This is something I don’t think anyone has seen before,” the president said during his trip. In Alabama alone, at least a million homes and businesses are without power. The death toll has now reached at least 319 across seven states making this the deadliest outbreak of tornadoes this country has seen since 1932. At least one of the storms, a 205 MPH twister in Smithville, Mississippi, has now been classified as an EF-5 storm - the National Weather Service’s most severe ranking for a tornado. We’ll have the latest ahead tonight on The Last Word.
