Hurricane Injuries and Damage in the United States

Severe tornadoes and hurricanes have injured many people and caused significant damage in the United States. Local media reported that Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky were particularly affected. According to ABC News, at least eight tornadoes were recorded in a few hours last night.

There were “many, many serious injuries” in the small town of Winchester, Indiana, a police spokesman said that night. At least three deaths were reported earlier. This is currently not confirmed. An accurate picture of the situation would be possible only after inspecting the collapsed buildings, he said.


“Pure Destruction”

In Randolph County, where Winchester is located, a supermarket and fast food restaurant were destroyed, local media reported. In Selma, a city of about 750 people 25 kilometers to the west, the storm damaged 50 percent of all buildings, the Civil Defense Agency said.

United States: Hurricane Destruction and Injuries

A tornado wreaked havoc in Ohio and Kentucky (USA). Many people are said to have been seriously injured by the storm. No casualties are known. Many houses were severely damaged or completely destroyed.

“It's just devastating,” Lakeview Ohio Chamber of Commerce President Amber Fagan told ABC 6 News. Photos published in local media showed shuttered houses and broken trees. At least 50 buildings were reported damaged by storms in Milton, Kentucky.

Power cut in many places due to damaged cables. Many schools were closed. Experts attribute the increase in natural disasters — storms, floods and wildfires — to the effects of climate change in the United States.
