Cleanup Efforts Ongoing Following Kentucky Tornado

Cleanup efforts continue, Monday, December 13, in Mayfield, Kentucky, after a devastating tornado swept through the midwestern U.S. city.

READ MORE: The death toll mounted Sunday from an unseasonal string of U.S. tornadoes that swept through six Southern and Midwestern states late Friday even as one emergency official expressed hope that more survivors would be found.

The destruction was the worst in the state of Kentucky, with the death toll already at 80. Many of the deaths occurred when a twister leveled a candle factory.

The violent tornadoes, unusual in December in the United States, tore a 365-kilometer path through Arkansas, Illinois, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee and Kentucky, but the destruction stretched through 321 kilometers in Kentucky.
