Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Storms in several states which produced tornadoes caused more than 30 deaths over the weekend, included Tennessee, Indiana, Arkansas and at least 4 other states.  Twelve people died in Tennessee alone, with one adult and two children dying, as highs winds in Memphis knocked trees into houses.  Officials reported the remaining deaths as “weather-related” but no other details were given.  Two weather-related deaths occurred in Indiana and 15 more were reported in Arkansas, Illinois, Delaware, Mississippi and Alabama. President Joe Biden promised federal aid to Arkansas which he described as a “major disaster.”  Severe weather in Texas also caused Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to stop all flights for a few hours. The National Storm Prediction Center is forecasting similar weather later this week for the Midwest between Chicago and Little Rock, Arkansas.
