35 dead after days of tornadoes in South, Midwest

LOUISVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Forecasts for a third day of killer tornados in the South and Midwest didn't pan out, leaving many in the South and Midwest with new concerns about flooding Wednesday. But despite the loss of at least 35 lives, there was also a sense that things could have been worse.

A vast storm system still packed considerable punch after days of tornadoes broke out in Arkansas and Oklahoma and later erupted around the South.

At least four possible tornadoes were reported late Tuesday in North Carolina but there were no immediate reports of injuries. Heavy downpours also flooded low-lying streets along parts of the Gulf Coast and rivers swelled with runoff.
