After the storm: drones sent in to help locate victims of deadly US hurricanes

Infrared drones have been sent in to search for victims following a series of devastating hurricanes that smashed through several southern United States on Sunday.

One of the twisters was a mile (1.6km) wide and travelled at speeds of 170mph (274kph), tore through Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

Thousands of houses and vehicles were destroyed and at least 23 people, including children, were killed. All told, this was the deadliest twister in six years.
