Late on Friday and on Saturday, a series of tornadoes went through the central and southern United States, leaving behind a trail of destruction and casualties. Tornado-related deaths were reported in Kentucky, Arkansas, Tennessee and Missouri.
On Wednesday, US President Joe Biden visited western Kentucky, which was particularly hard hit by the tornado.
Earlier, Biden declared a state of emergency in Kentucky. The city of Mayfield was among the worst-affected communities: more than 100 people were huddled inside a candle manufacturing factory there when a tornado ripped through.
