Rescuers Race to Save Tornado Survivors As Death Toll Climbs

Mayfield Tornado Cbs

The search for survivors continues after a wave of deadly tornadoes spread across a string of states both in the south and midwest over the weekend.

The series of over fifty tornadoes is being called historic.

Its devastation has left many without homes or places to go to work.

The community of Mayfield, Kentucky was one of the hardest hit in the nation.

Their city was practically leveled overnight from Friday into Saturday, including a large candle factory.

Search and rescue workers are in a race against time as they look for survivors and hope for miracles.

Kentucky’s governor says the death toll could soon exceed 100.

More than a dozen people died in five other states, and in Illinois an Amazon warehouse was torn apart.

President Biden has already approved aid for the areas hit hardest.
