Twisters rip through Kentucky, 4 other US States: 100 killed

Buildings were flattened, vehicles overturned and residents were trapped under rubble in central and southern US. The tornadoes wreaked unprecedented devastation in Kentucky, where a state of emergency has been declared. Heavy snow in the Midwest, tornadoes in the South and rain in California, which will continue for several days, are forecast to affect 35 million Americans.

FRANKFORT (Kentucky), Dec 11: Nearly 100 people are feared killed when ferocious tornadoes tore through Kentucky and other US States in central and southern US since Friday evening through Saturday morning. A state of emergency has been declared and the National Guards deployed for rescue and relief.

"We believe our death toll from this event will exceed 50 Kentuckians and probably end up closer to 70 or 100 lost lives (in Kentucky alone)," Governor Andy Beshear told reporters. "We will make it through this," he added, "We will rebuild, we are strong, resilient people."

Four tornadoes swept through hundreds of kms from Arkansas to Kentucky. There were over two dozen more tornadoes reported from the other States. Almost 60,000 Kentuckians had been left without power, Beshear said. The city of Mayfield had been "devastated," he said. A roof collapse at a candle factory had "resulted in mass casualties."

Flattened buildings, overturned vehicles and workers scouring rubble for trapped people spoke of breathtaking damage in some areas, a CNN report said. One of the most devastated is the southwestern Kentucky city of Mayfield.

Tornado warnings were issued in Arkansas, Illinois, Missouri and Tennessee also early Friday by the National Weather Service. In Arkansas and Illinois three people died in building collapses. An Amazon warehouse in western Illinois and a nursing home in Arkansas were destroyed.

Heavy snow in the Midwest, tornadoes in the South and rain in California were forecast to affect 35 million Americans. And these were feared to continue for days.
