USA: Hurricane Katrina Wreaks Havoc, Declares State Of Emergency In Kentucky

US President Joe Biden has declared a state of emergency in Kentucky in the wake of the devastating tornado.

According to a report by the British news agency Reuters, he said that this catastrophe was probably one of the biggest storms in American history.

Speaking to reporters, Biden said he would instruct the Environmental Protection Agency to assess the role of climate change in triggering the storm, but also questioned the tornado warning system.

It is believed that a series of hurricanes have wreaked havoc in six US states, which has so far killed more than 100 people.

Hurricanes in Township, Kentucky, knocked down buildings, overturned cars, uprooted trees and wreaked havoc on all sides, leaving locals terrified and in deep shock.

Extreme weather conditions destroyed a candle factory, fire station and police station in a small area of ​​Kentucky.

The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a nursing home in nearby Missouri, killing at least six workers at an Amazon warehouse in Illinois.

Kentucky Governor Andy Bashir said the tornadoes were the most devastating in the state's history.

He said about 40 workers were rescued at a candle factory in the city's Mayfield when about 110 people were inside when the factory was reduced to rubble.

At the same time, he said, it would be a miracle for any of those trapped under the rubble to survive.

I've never seen a catastrophe in my life that I find difficult to put into words," the governor said, adding that the death toll in Kentucky could rise to more than 100.

Andy Bashir said 189 National Guard personnel have been deployed to assist in the rehabilitation, and rescue operations will focus on a large part of the Mayfield, which has a population of 10,000.

Videos and photos posted on social media show brick buildings collapsing in the central part of the city and parked cars almost buried under rubble.

The tornado also toppled the minaret of the historic Graves County Courthouse and partially demolished the nearby First United Methodist Church.

Mayfield Fire Chief Jeremy Cresson said the candle factory had been turned into a pile of bent metals, steel and machinery, and rescue workers had to crawl over the bodies to reach survivors. The storm started in Arkansas and spread from Missouri and Tennessee to Kentucky.

An unusually high temperature and humidity created an atmosphere of extreme weather at this time of year, said a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
