Worst Tornado In 37 Years Hits South U.S! Obama Visits -- "I've never seen devastation like this" (Video + Photos)

A wave of storms moved across the South on Wednesday, spawning the worst tornado outbreak in 37 years. It came days after a severe storm and tornado in the St. Louis area left homes flattened and an airport closed.

The recovery of more bodies pushed the death toll in Wednesday night's twisters to 329, making the outbreak the deadliest in the U.S. since 1932. The news came shortly after President Barack Obama toured some of the destroyed neighborhoods and met with devastated residents.

"I've never seen devastation like this,"
Obama said after touring the Tuscaloosa area.
"It is heartbreaking."

Social Media has played an important role in helping families who have experienced any of the destruction. A Facebook page has been made to reunite items lost in the Tornado to their owners.
