Tornado season is well underway in the American Midwest after at least 40 people were killed in a series of vicious twisters.
The storms created a path of destruction in the states of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Alabama and Georgia.
“The damage I saw was the worst I’ve seen. It was a war zone, debris everywhere, buildings destroyed, other buildings just the walls standing, roofs gone. It was a terrible sight.”
Those words from Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear who described his visit to the tornado-ravaged town of West Liberty.
