First lady Jill Biden and Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear rallied to bring clothing and supplies to the families affected by the latest storm to hit the western part of the state of Kentucky on Dec. 10. The Bowling Green neighborhood was one of several areas hard hit by the tornadoes that tore through the state. Houses were decimated and families were in shock. At least 77 people were killed, making it the worst death toll in state history related to a tornado event.
The multiple twisters left homes and businesses destroyed and families displaced without any supplies or shelter. Biden’s visit, along with other governmental staff, aimed at changing that.
