‘We Have to Rely on Our Faith’: Kentucky Declared a Disaster Area After Tornadoes Swarm – Looks like a War Zone

The search for victims continues after a weekend swarm of dozens of tornadoes left of a path of destruction through five states.

In Mayfield, Kentucky, workers on the night shift at Mayfield Consumer Products were in the middle of the holiday rush, cranking out candles, when the word went out: “Duck and cover.”

Before and after photos show what happened next.

It was first feared that as many as 70 factory workers might be dead, but as of Monday morning, that number stood at 8 dead, 8 missing.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear (D) said, “I am praying that maybe original estimates of those we have lost were wrong. If so, it’s going to be pretty wonderful.”

Dozens of people in five states were killed by tornadoes that leveled entire communities Friday night, leaving many areas looking like war zones.
