From the New York Post:

Tornadoes rip across 5 states, at least 50 dead
At least 50 people died when tornadoes swept across five states overnight, causing a train to derail and destroying a candle factory in Western Kentucky, tearing the roof off an Amazon warehouse in Illinois and obliterating a nursing home in Arkansas. Officials warned the death toll may rise as daybreak reveals the extent of the damage.

Hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses across seven states were also without power as the sun rose to reveal the path of destruction from the storms.

From Associated Press:

Dozens feared dead as tornadoes, storms strike US states
Tornadoes and severe weather caused catastrophic damage across multiple states late Friday, killing at least six people overnight as a storm system tore through a candle factory in Kentucky, an Amazon facility in Illinois and a nursing home in Arkansas. The Kentucky governor said he feared dozens more could be dead.

Gov. Andy Beshear said about 110 people were in the factory in Mayfield, Kentucky, when the tornado hit.

“We believe our death toll from this event will exceed 50 Kentuckians and probably end up 70 to 100,” he said at a news conference Saturday. “It’s very hard, really tough, and we’re praying for each and every one of those families.”

More as I hear about it.  Crap.
