Yes, the Kentucky Wildcats’ loss to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish was painful Saturday, but it was nothing compared to the tragic events in Western Kentucky that occurred Friday night and early Saturday morning.
One of the worst tornado events to ever hit Kentucky ripped through the state’s Western part, hitting directly in Mayfield and Bowling Green, among other Western Kentucky towns and cities.
Gov. Andy Beshear reported between 70-100 Kentuckians have died as a result of the storm, while several towns suffered unthinkable damage.
The weather events also led to damage and loss of life in other midwestern/southern states such as Arkansas, Missouri, and Illinois. All also deserve prayers and help along with those in need in Western Kentucky.
Numerous relief efforts have begun and donations can be made to several different relief funds using this link.
