Mayfield Tornado Video – A brief video taken by a driver early Saturday gives a road-level look at the astonishing repercussions of the cyclones that cleared across five states, killing somewhere around 70.
“No doubt, Mayfield needs a few petitions,” nearby inhabitant Ryan Mitchum says seriously as he passes through the unassuming community, pop. 10,000, which seems to have been essentially smoothed by the huge line of tempests.
The camera catches a crushed white SUV roosted on a heap of block and rubble, broken trees and utility shafts, and stupefied survivors meandering in the daybreak light past destroyed homes and stores.
“That was a transmission shop,” Mitchum says as he gradually travels past a destroyed blue structure that is feeling the loss of its rooftop, windows, and a few dividers.
