December 15, 2021

Thousands are still without heat in Kentucky after a string of tornadoes blew through, causing massive destruction. One family in the epicenter town of Mayfield was so desperate to keep warm they started a fire using wreckage from their destroyed house. There was no power, no water and nighttime temperatures plummeted below freezing. President Joe Biden visited the stricken region Wednesday, promising help to rebuild. More than $10 million in donations have already come in for tornado relief.
