KENTUCKY Governor Andy Beshear in the United States (U.S.) said no fewer than 80 had died in his state alone, bringing the confirmed death toll across ravaged states to 94.

Authorities yesterday spoke of the vast devastation across multiple states in the wake of a burst of deadly tornadoes this weekend that ravaged communities and levelled towns.

Rescuers picked up through the splintered ruins yesterday after several tornadoes wrought devastation on several southern U.S. states and the lower Midwest on Friday.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear said the death toll in his state alone rose to at least 80 overnight, bringing the overall death toll across several states to at least 94.

Most of the confirmed deaths in Kentucky were of workers at a candle factory, where 110 were working round the clock to fulfill Christmas demand at the time the twister hit.

Authorities on Saturday reported rescuing 40 of the workers who were in the building at the time, but by yesterday, hope of finding anyone else alive had all but evaporated.
