At least 22 people have died and 45 are still missing in the US state of Tennessee, when Hurricane Henri brought heavy rains and flooding.
Among the dead are allegedly two infants. They were twins and are said to have been torn out of their father's hands by the rushing water, reports AP. An eyewitness tells how two other younger girls were swept away in the water without anyone being able to rescue them.
Locally, 430 millimeters of rain fell in the area in less than 24 hours, according to the US National Weather Service. At least 45 people are still missing, making the total death count likely to increase.
The state of New York was also preparing for the effects of Hurricane Henri. However, just before pulling in over the shore, the hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm. Already by midday on Sunday, the storm had more or less passed. 100,000 households were allegedly without electricity, with some concerns about more rain and floods that could follow.
