Tornados in Midwest and South leave dozens dead

| No Comments

Dozens are dead after tornados tore through Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Alabama and Georgia Friday. This string of storms marks the second time in a year Alabama has been struck in one year, according to The Huffington Post and CNN.

The tornados were the second set of storms in just over 48 hours, after an earlier round killed 13 people in the Midwest and the South, according to the Huffington Post.

According to the National Weather Services, four twisters hit Kentucky and are recorded as the worst in the region in 24 years, with several having wind speeds up to 160 mph, said the Huffington Post.

President Barack Obama has offered his condolences as well as federal aid assistance to the officials of the states, according to CNN.

"We're knocked down, but we're not knocked out," said Ohio governor, Kasich, according to CNN. "We're going to get through it."
