Bless the folks in Mayfield


My heart and prayers go out to those communities that were devastated by the deadly tornado outbreak.

It’s difficult to wrap your head around a town being wiped off the face of the earth.

But that’s what basically happened to Mayfield, Ky., a town that’s been a town for over 200 years.

No place for school. No place to go to church or have any shelter at all.

No courthouse. No city hall. No post office.

Nothing for a town the size of Newcastle.

After all the people are accounted for where would you start the rebuilding process?

First you have to clean up the mess.

Very scary that it can happen anywhere.

It was terrible to hear that the one twister was reportedly on the ground for 200 miles.

There were three other tornadoes with the death toll up to at least 74, with 109 people still unaccounted for.

Reports are that thousands of Kentuckians are homeless due to the storms.

Residents have been told they will be without heat, water and electricity for a very long time. It’s going to take years for restoration, officials confirm.

Illinois and Tennessee were also hit by twisters but Kentucky by far bore the brunt of destruction.

It’s very difficult to take it all in.

It’s happened here.

Snyder. Woodward. Bridge Creek-Newcastle-Moore-Oklahoma City.

It’s just awful. No other way to put it.

And that doesn’t even touch the fact that dozens were killed.
