CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee officials have announced that a 4-year-old child in Chattanooga died from injuries caused by an Easter tornado that rampaged the region in the middle of the night.

The death, confirmed Wednesday by the Chattanooga Fire Department, now brings the number of fatalities caused by the tornado to four.

The fire department did not release any further information about the child.

Gov. Bill Lee visited Chattanooga Tuesday to survey the damage, which along with fatalities, injured dozens and destroyed hundreds of buildings.
