Highlights of the story
- It is feared that 100 people may have died so far

The hurricane in the United States is even more intense. Speaking of the latest update, eight people have died and eight are missing at a Kentucky candle factory here. Besides, the storm has affected dozens of people. The missing 8 people are expected to be safe. The blast killed at least six people in Illinois. Here one died in Edwardsville (Amazon distribution center affected), four in Tennessee, two in Arkansas (great devastation in nursing homes) and two in Missouri. Eleven people are said to have died in and around Bowling Green alone. If we talk about the statistics so far, 100 people have died in the United States.
It is not possible to say how many died.
President Joe Biden has called it the greatest tragedy in American history. He said Sunday that it was not possible to say exactly how many people had died in the storm. The Kentucky area is said to have been suddenly plunged into darkness on Saturday. This severe hurricane killed many. Rescue teams are trying to rescue those buried under the rubble of the building due to the storm.
Rescue workers crawled into the factory
Kentucky Governor Andy Bezier warned on Sunday that more than 100 people were expected to be killed in the hurricane. He said- perhaps we pray that the original assessment of what we have lost may be wrong. After the storm hit Kentucky, which was hardest hit by the storm, about 40 people were rescued from a candle factory. The storm was so strong that rescue workers had to crawl into the factory for help.
‘We felt like we were in the twilight zone’
Kentucky Pastor Joel Cooley described the scene of the disaster as “almost as terrifying as if you were in the Twilight Zone. You could hear the smell of candles all around as you walk into the factory. The sound of the siren. I have never imagined all this together until today.”
More than 1,000 houses were demolished
Governor Bessier said – we mourn this devastation together, together we are going to dig and clean, we will rebuild and move forward together. Authorities said a total of four hurricanes hit the state, one of which was very unusual, about 200 miles (322 km) long. It became even more popular because the cold weather usually came at a time of year when hurricanes were under control. Bessier said of Dawson Springs – half of my father’s hometown was destroyed. He said we have more than 1000 houses that were destroyed.
4 degree temperature and power outage
The temperature in Kentucky, USA at this time is 4 degrees. The lamp is on. The power was cut off due to strong winds. About 300 national guards are going door-to-door to help people clear the rubbish. Work is underway to locate the bodies of the dead with the help of a sniffer dog. Kirk, a woman who came to the ministry to get information about the missing, said she was standing 10 feet away from her boyfriend when the storm suddenly hit. Lightning flashed in the sky. What if I take my eyes off him for a second, he’s gone. Not sure where he went.
