Mayfield: Kentucky’s governor says a devastating tornado touched down for 227 miles more than 200 in his state and deaths were feared in 10 counties.
Gov. Andy Beshear said at a news conference Saturday that at least 70 people were feared dead in Kentucky, and the death toll could exceed 100.
This will be, I believe, the deadliest tornado system to ever run through Kentucky, Beshear said.
Beshear said about 110 people were in a Mayfield candle factory hit by a tornado.
Local officials said national guard members and emergency workers from across the state were pouring into Mayfield to help with the search and rescue operation
