We had to hurry up and get out of there Friday night because there was another round of storms coming, and Saturday morning my friends called, and they were already back over at my house, and they found the dog,” Lindsey explained.

We’re all thankful to be alive,” 她继续.

Kentucky was the hardest hit state over the weekend, with four tornadoes sweeping through the state, ultimately taking the lives of at least 74 人.

One of the tornadoes had a path of destruction of 200 英里.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear 宣布 Monday he expects the death toll to climb, and predicted there are many more people unaccounted for.

President Biden is expected to arrive in Kentucky on Wednesday to assess the storm damage as victims like Lindsey begin to recover from the tragedy just two weeks before Christmas.
