Mayfield Mayor Kathy Stewart O’Nan told CBS: “Our infrastructure has been damaged too much. We don’t have tap water. Our water tower has been lost.

“Our wastewater management has been lost and there is no natural gas for the city. So we have nothing to rely on.

“So it’s absolutely vital at the moment for a lot of our people.”

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear vowed he would not let any families lose their homes.

He said the motels in the park are being used as temporary shelters.

Jack Whitfield Jr, Hopkins County executive-judge, told Related press: “It looks like a bomb went off. It was only completely destroyed in areas. Full recovery will take many years. “

Glynda Glover, 82, said her bed was covered with broken glass when the wind blew through the windows of her apartment. She says she doesn’t know what “normal” is anymore.

And Tim Morgan, a volunteer chaplain, said: “Just utter decay. Now there is a whole hillside of houses up to 3 meters high.”

‘Absolute Decision’

President Biden will survey the damage when he visits Kentucky today.

FEMA has sent about 135,000 gallons of water, 74,000 meals, thousands of cots, blankets and shelter kits to the pandemic.

The crooks don’t stop claiming victims in other states.

The body of 9-year-old Annistyn Rackley was found in a field after the tow truck devastated her parents’ home near Caruthersville, southeast Missouri on Friday.

The third grader and her siblings took shelter in a windowless bathroom before the storm made landfall.

The girls’ mother Meghan sent Annistyn’s “aunt Sandy” a photo of the three smiling children in and by the bathtub.

Minutes after the snap was taken, family members were carried dozens of meters into the air and into a field. First responders found them in the mud.

Sandra Hooker, Meghan’s grandmother’s sister, has called Annistyn a “special angel”, adding that she has always been energetic and outgoing despite a rare liver disease.

“Their house was shattered,” she told the AP. There were debris lying around forever in the field, and so they were sucked into the tornado. “

DELICIOUS Dish

Korean veteran and Covid-19 survivor Golden Hembry was one of two people who died in the Monette Manor retirement home in Monette, Arkansas.

The veteran was in the hallway when the roof collapsed and tragically did not survive.

And, some Amazon workers was killed when the storm made landfall at a factory in Edwardsville, Illinois.

According to experts, insured losses due to destructive storms can reach up to 5 billion USD.

Credit agency Fitch told Reuters the loss was comparable to a Midwest “derecho” event in August 2020.

Wind swept through parts of Nebraska, Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.

And, gusts of 126mph were recorded in Atkins, Iowa, CBS2 report.

Homes and businesses in Cedar Rapids were without power for nearly a month while cornfields were devastated.
