Multiple tornadoes hit the country over the weekend, destroying buildings and leaving thousands without electricity. According to President Joe Biden, it was possibly the "largest" spell of tornadoes ever registered in US history.
At least 80 people were killed by tornadoes this week, as high winds roared through the Midwest, the Great Lakes area, and Midsouth. The supercell nicked Tennessee and Missouri, while the most-hit cities are located in Arkansas and Kentucky.
The tornadoes hit Earlington and Mayfield in Kentucky, leaving people dead, cars upturned, houses in ruins, and buildings collapsed in their path.
