Joe Biden to tour tornado-hit Kentucky as death roll rises

TRT World says Kentucky officials have voiced relief that dozens of workers at a candle factory appear to have survived tornadoes that killed at least 88 people and left a trail of devastation across six US states.

Governor Andy Beshear said on Monday that 74 deaths have been confirmed in the southeastern state and choked up as he told reporters the fatalities ranged in age from five months old to 86.

“Like the folks in western Kentucky, I’m not doing so well today and I’m not sure how many of us are,” Beshear said.

The governor said 109 people in Kentucky remain unaccounted for and “it may be weeks before we have final counts on both deaths and levels of destruction.”
