Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear called the tornadoes that ripped across the state, β€œthe worst, most devastating, most deadly tornado event in Kentucky’s history,” speaking at a news conference in Bowling Green Saturday afternoon.

The governor said he believes that the death toll will be over 100, saying β€œI think it can rise significantly.”

Beshear also spoke about the historic nature of the storms.

“This was four different tornados, and I’m told we’re actually going to see a little bit more on that, that hit us, including one that touched down in Arkansas and then stayed on the ground for 227 straight miles, which we believe is likely the longest in US history,” the governor said.
