With The death toll reaching 84 today, it is now regarded as Kentucky’s “deadliest storm”.
Two children were among the victims as the massive storm struck Arkansas, Illinois, and Missouri over Friday and Saturday as well, leaving utter devastation in its path.

Governor Andy Beshear has said that the state should expect closer to 100 deaths after the tornado ripped through multiple communities, leveling buildings.
Meanwhile, local ABC affiliate KAIT reported that two people were killed and five others hurt in a “mass casualty” event at Monette Manor nursing home after a tornado pummeled the area in Arkansas.
About 20 people were trapped at the facility, which has 90 beds, according to the news station, as shocking pictures showed debris covering the parking lot, with major damage to the building.

Additionally, the storm could produce destructive winds in parts of the Great Lakes, according to The Weather Channel.
