To say that the tornado that ripped through Western Kentucky on December 10, 2021, was devastating would be an understatement. In the days after, we learned that the EF4 tornado was one of the largest and most destructive in the history of the United States, making its way through four different states while traveling 250 miles on the ground leaving destruction in its path.

The Devastation Was Wide Spread

Many of our friends and families were impacted and relief efforts began immediately as a state of emergency was issued, but the recovery from that devastation could take years. Debris was spread for hundreds of miles as strangers tried to reunite tornado victims with belongings found.

The Days That Followed

In the days that followed, we saw drone footage of the wreckage in Bremen and Dawson Springs, Kentucky left in the wake of the tornado. There were videos that surfaced of the tornado as it traveled through Bremen, leaving destruction in its path.
