A candle factory in Mayfield, Kentucky where over 100 people were working. An Amazon warehouse in Edwardsville, Illinois, Monette Manor nursing home, in Monette, Arkansas.

Many other individuals homes, restaurants, stores, a court house and other buildings faced destruction. Individuals also died or were injured in these structures as the twister and storm ripped through swaths of the nation.

Early Saturday, rescue teams were sorting through rubble. Rescue efforts were slowed down as there was debris that blocked roads and other paths. Many buildings, federal, local and residential suffered immense damage and some buildings were totally flattened.

Sheriff Matt Sanderson confirmed that the severe winds derailed a train from its tracks in Hopkins County, Kentucky. He told WKYT-TV that they were “trying to assess what type of material” they had on that train.

He also said that two children in the Barnsley area were reported missing. They were found in a bathtub unscathed, away from the location of their house. They were returned to their mother after they had a miraculous escape and were found by rescuers.
