    DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. — A baby girl is the latest casualty in the deadly tornado rampage that ripped through western Kentucky.

    The family of two-month-old Oaklynn confirmed she died from her injuries at Norton Children’s Hospital in Louisville early Monday morning. She and her family were hiding in the bathroom when they were sucked out and blown across the street by strong winds.

    Initial medical test results for Oaklynn showed no problems but after she kept grunting and seemed sleepier following her discharge from Baptist Health Deaconess in Madisonville, a second test found bleeding to the brain, according to her father Douglas Koon.

    Everyone was thrown from the home on Crawford Lane and landed across the street. Koon painstakingly tended to each member of his family including his mother-in-law, 11-year-old son Bentley with autism and 4-year-old son Dallas who were buried in debris.

    BREMEN, Ky (WEHT) — And the stories coming out of Kentucky are all about resiliency and compassion. People with nothing are doing everything they can to help their neighbors come to terms with the tragedy.
    We found one man in Bremen who’s doing just that. In the middle of all this damage and devastation, a man plays the piano in an effort to bring hope to his neighborhood.

    The day after tornadoes ravaged western Kentucky, the governor is now saying at least 80 people are dead, and there are likely more.

    Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said at a news conference Saturday that the death toll may exceed 100 by the end of the day.

    “This event is the worst, most devastating tornado event in Kentucky's history,” Beshear said. "I believe that by the end of today or tomorrow, we will be north of at least 70 lives lost here in Kentucky, I think we will have lost more than 100 people and I think it could rise significantly in those numbers."

    Kentucky hardest hit as storms leave dozens dead in 5 states
    By BRUCE SCHREINER and JIM SALTER today

    MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) — A monstrous tornado, carving a track that could rival the longest on record, ripped across the middle of the U.S. in a stormfront that killed dozens and tore apart a candle factory, crushed a nursing home, derailed a train and smashed an Amazon warehouse.

    “I pray that there will be another rescue. I pray that there will be another one or two,” Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said, as crews sifted through the wreckage of the candle factory in Mayfield, where 110 people were working overnight Friday when the storm hit. Forty of them were rescued...
