ARABI, La. (AP) - Louisiana is sending 300 National Guard troops to the New Orleans area where tornadoes flipped cars, ripped off rooftops and killed at least one person.

The St. Bernard Parish president says a girl on a breathing machine was rescued from a house that was lifted up and landed in the middle of a street.

Authorities said another parish resident died in the storm, which killed a woman south of Dallas as it moved through Texas.

The National Weather Service reported flash flooding and another apparent twister in Alabama.

The worst of it appears to be waning over South Carolina.
