As more than six dozen tornadoes ripped through the central United States on Friday afternoon, reports came in of at least eleven deaths, while the town of Marysville, Indiana was described by a local sheriff as simply “gone.”

In Henryville, Indiana, the local high school was seriously damaged, but the students were evacuated safely. Large hail and fallen trees that brought down power lines added to the destruction, and there were reports in Alabama of people trapped in the rubble of their homes.

These raw videos are from the Associated Press, March 2, 2012. The first two show a tornado and major storm damage in Henryville, Indiana. The third shows buildings demolished by the winds in Tennessee.
