Sunday/ total destruction

From the New York Times:
At least 90 people were killed by tornadoes across at least six states Friday night and early Saturday morning.
The tornadoes were part of a weather system that was wreaking havoc in many parts of the country and hit Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.
In Kentucky, one tornado stayed on the ground for more than 200 miles.

Mayfield, Kentucky took a direct hit from what must have been at least an EF-3 tornado: one that produces winds of 136 to 165 mph.  The tornado sheared entire homes off their foundations and lofted debris more than 30,000 feet into the air.
