(CNN)-- A week ago, a powerful storm system unleashed a swarm of tornadoes across the Southern United States. Dozens of communities have been impacted by the damage, and the death toll is more than 300.

 

At least 178 tornadoes were part of the severe weather that raked 14 states April 27-28, making it the largest tornado outbreak in U.S. history, the National Weather Service said Wednesday.
