At least 10 people, including two children, were killed due to flooding in the state of Tennessee in the eastern United States, CNN reported, citing Humphries County Sheriff Chris Davis.
According to Davis, another 31 people are missing.
On Saturday evening, a center started working in the district, which is designed to help people find missing relatives and friends.
Flooding in Tennessee was provoked by heavy rains that have been coming since Friday. In some cities, the record for the daily amount of precipitation (38.6 cm) was broken. The Emergency Management Agency of the state of Tennessee declared the third level of danger due to flooding and urged residents not to drive by car, avoid flooded roads.
The National Guard of the state sent a helicopter to help; military vehicles are also involved in rescue operations.
