A tornado tore through parts of New Orleans and its suburbs Tuesday night, flipping cars, ripping roofs off homes and killing at least one person in a region that was pummeled by Hurricane Katrina 17 years ago.



Parts of St. Bernard Parish, which borders New Orleans to the southeast, appeared to take the brunt of the weather's fury, and that's where the fatality occurred. St. Bernard Parish officials gave no details on how the person died; they said multiple other people were injured.



Rescue workers were searching for more people in need of assistance, according to Sheriff Jimmy Pohlmann. Parish President Guy McInnis said the tornado caused widespread damage.
