Clip: 03/05/2019 | 6m 7s

Tornadoes tore through the southeastern U.S. over the weekend, killing more than 20 people so far, though the death toll may rise as rescue workers comb through rubble. Cutting a path more than a mile wide and 24 miles long, the tornado was the deadliest in the U.S. in six years. William Brangham talks to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Jeremy Redmon, reporting from Lee County, Alabama.
