Shocking images show the devastation left behind after nearly 20 tornadoes swept through five states in the Mississippi Valley Friday.

The epicenter of the destruction was the town of Mayfield, a town of about 10,000 people in the far western part of Kentucky, where the Bluegrass State borders Illinois, Missouri and Arkansas.

Entire blocks were flattened, houses and buildings ripped apart, leaving twisted metal, shattered tree limbs and bricks scattered across streets.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear said at a briefing midday on Saturday the death toll was now ‘north of 70’ and that ‘it may in fact end up exceeding 100 before the day is done.’

‘This will be, I believe, the deadliest tornado system to ever run through Kentucky,’ he added. ‘It is indescribable. The level of devastation is unlike anything I have ever seen.’
