On Friday, December 10th multiple tornadoes touched down in western Kentucky. Most of the damage was caused by a tornado that stayed on the ground for 227 miles, with the worst destruction in Mayfield and Bowling Green.
At least 74 people lost their lives. Others sustained serious injuries, and more than 100 people are still missing. Additionally, thousands of homes and businesses were destroyed.
Our team at NCF Kentucky is working directly with ministries on the ground. They’ve opened the Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund to help victims of the tornadoes rebuild.
