Seven people have died after an apparent tornado tore through a mobile home park in the US, reported Sky News.

About 20 homes were levelled in the park near Adel, south Georgia, before dawn on Sunday.

Emergency services are still searching through the debris for survivors.

Officials described how mobile homes had been "thrown everywhere", while trees were pictured strewn across the landscape after being ripped from the ground.

In all, 11 people have died in the state during weekend storms - with another 23 injured.

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency said the deaths occurred in Cook, Brooks and Berrien counties.

Officials in Brooks said two people died when a mobile home was flung about 100 yards into a road.

Southeastern states have been pounded by storms and unstable weather over the weekend.

Another four people died when a tornado with winds above 136mph tore a 25-mile path across southern Mississippi overnight into Saturday.

Tornado warnings are in place for south Georgia and parts of the Florida panhandle.
