Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “‘Worst tornado damage’ seen in a long time, says Kentucky governor” – below is their description.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear estimated the toll would ‘exceed 50’ but could reach 100 after ‘some of the worst tornado damage’ the state has experienced ‘in a long time’. ‘It’s been one of the toughest nights in Kentucky’s history,’ Beshear told a news conference early on Saturday. ‘I fear that there are more than 50 dead in Kentucky… probably closer to somewhere between 70 and 100, it’s devastating.’ He added the town of Mayfield had been devastated and people caught in the wreckage of a candle factory begged to be freed from the rubble. A nursing home resident in Arkansas died after the building was ‘shredded’ and another person killed in Missouri were among the first confirmed fatalities. Meanwhile workers in Illinois were trapped inside a partially collapsed Amazon distribution centre.
