At least five states were hit by tornadoes on Friday, including Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee, killing at least 50 people. One or more tornadoes slammed a 250-mile-long area in a possible “quad-state” tornado. Search and rescue operations continue in the hardest-hit areas in Kentucky with the help of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Some of the worst destruction from the Kentucky tornado was centered in Mayfield, a town of nearly 10,000 people. At least 110 people were huddled inside a candle factory in the area when a tornado ripped through.
Dozens of people are dead after tornadoes and severe storms hit the central U.S., with at least 70 estimated killed in Kentucky alone. In Mayfield, Ky., a candle factory was hit, leading to multiple fatalities.

Shellie We’re our own worst enemy. Situations such as this tragedy will unfortunately become the norm in this country if we don’t work towards the climate issues. Sad! Very sad!
Shelly So sad and scary. This unfortunely is an effect of global warming. I think there will be a lot more of this. I live in the midwest. It should be cold and snowing, sleeting ect. We have been having days in the 70s. Today is 40s. Tomorrow back to 60.
