Storm surge – search continues for tornado survivors

Published

The search is continuing today for survivors, after at least 30 tornadoes ripped through six US states

At least 94 people are dead, with the state of Kentucky being hit the worst, as US President Joe Biden declares a disaster for the region.

At least 80 of the deceased so far are Kentucky residents… after dozens were killed in a candle factory in Mayfield.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear says the situation is devastating… saying one of his state’s biggest challenges is that they’re losing so many people… and most of the morgues aren’t big enough to deal with it.

Emergency response teams are still surveying the damage, knocking on doors and reaching out to residents to try to make contact to see who’s alive.

This comes as more than 50,000 residents across Kentucky remain without power following the storm surge.

In Illinois, a tornado warning siren gave Amazon factory workers just eleven minutes to find shelter, with six people killed as the storm ripped through the warehouse.

The US Federal Emergency Management Agency says weather events like this are the “new normal” as it prepares to bolster resilience as a result.

“This is what dangerous climate change is…This is a really stark warning to the world.”
