LADY LAKE, Unnited States (AFP) - Rescue workers are picking over rubble searching for bodies after Florida's deadliest storm in almost a decade let loose a tornado that obliterated hundreds of homes and killed at least 19 people, authorities said.
State governor Charlie Crist declared a state of emergency in four counties after pre-dawn storms Friday carved a trail of destruction and death, wrapping metal around trees and launching some victims into neighboring homes.
"The devastation is unimaginable," an emotional Crist told CNN television after touring the scene. "It's like a bomb went off in central Florida."
There were 13 fatalities in Paisley and six in Lady Lake, Christopher Patton, a spokesman for Lake County told AFP Saturday.
