At least 22 people have died and 55 are missing after 17 inches of rain lashed the US state of Tennessee. On Sunday, rescue teams searched for people among the damaged houses and rubble. Roads were washed away in rural areas, cellphone towers were uprooted and telephone lines were snapped as heavy rain lashed central Tennessee on Saturday, officials said.

Twins are among the dead

Christy Brown, the health and safety inspection coordinator at Humphreys County Schools, said emergency workers were searching people door-to-door. Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis confirmed 22 people were killed in the area. He said that most of the 55 missing people who have washed away in the floods lived in the nearby areas where the water rose the fastest. Two twins are among the dead. The National Meteorological Service said Humphreys County received about 17 inches (43 cm) of rain in less than a day on Saturday. Tennessee Governor Bill Lee visited the area.
