Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Friday expressed his sympathy to his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama for the deaths and damage caused by a series of tornados in different parts in the United States.

The Mexican Presidency said in a statement that Calderon expressed the solidarity of Mexico's people and government with the U.S. communities affected by the natural disaster as well as with relatives of the victims.

At least 326 people died in the worst tornados recorded in the U.S. in 37 years, in the U.S. states of Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri and Virginia.

Calderon also offered Mexican assistance to help U.S. authorities cope with the damage and to aid the victims.
