A massive tornado hit areas of east New Orleans late Tuesday morning, tearing a destructive path across a part of the city that included areas previously ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.

Severe storms in the Southeast throughout the morning eventually spawned a bloom of tornadoes in southern Louisiana. The National Weather Service confirmed that at least three had touched down in the region. It also issued a tornado watch, to be in effect until 5 p.m. CST.
