Early Saturday morning (Dec. 11), an intense line of storms rolled through the southern region of the U.S., with the worst of the storms taking place across the state of Kentucky. With 64 confirmed deaths as of reporting time and many more still missing, some cities, such as the small town of Dawson Springs, has seen as much as 75% of the community wiped out. The weekend’s storms spawned at least 50 tornadoes across eight states, according to the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center. Currently, there are over 300 National Guard troops that have been deployed to help with recovery efforts.
