Aerial view of Mayfield: The city was almost completely destroyed

As of Sunday night (12/12), the United States was still searching for survivors and tallying the damage caused by the series of tornadoes that hit the southeast on Friday night (10/12).

Considered one of the worst events involving these weather phenomena ever recorded in American history, according to the country’s president, Joe Biden, storms wreaked havoc in six states.

The state of Kentucky, which was hardest hit, was declared a state of emergency. There, at least 80 people died, dozens in the town of Mayfield, where the candle factory operated at the time of the events – and it ended up in a mountain of twisted iron.

As of Sunday, about 40 of the 110 employees estimated to be in the unit have been rescued. The factory was working extra shifts to handle Christmas orders.
