In the United States, floods “catastrophic” in Tennessee killed at least 21 people, authorities in the southern American state reported Sunday (August 22), and dozens of people remained wanted, according to several local media. A previous report reported 16 dead.

Twenty people have died in the town of Waverly, County of Humphreys, the local police chief said at a press conference. A 21st person has been found dead in a rural area, according to the same source, according to which the death toll is likely to worsen further.

“Between 22 and 43 cm of rain fell in this area during a period of 6 hours on Saturday morning”, told the State Emergency Management Agency. According to local officials, the waters rose so quickly that people did not have time to take shelter.

In a press conference on Sunday, US President Joe Biden expressed “his deep condolences” and asserted that the government stood “ready to offer help”.
