Aerial view of Mayfield: The city was almost completely destroyed

Until Sunday night (12/12), the United States was still searching for survivors and on Friday night (10/12) estimated the damage caused by the hurricane that hit the southeastern part of the country.

The hurricane is expected to wreak havoc in six states, according to President Joe Biden.

Kentucky, which declared a state of emergency, was the hardest hit. There, at least 80 people were killed, dozens in the town of Mayfield, where a candle factory was operating at the time of the incident – it was reduced to a mountain of twisted iron.

As of Sunday, about 40 employees had been rescued from the 110-member unit. The factory worked extra shifts to handle orders for Christmas.
