The town of Mayfield, Kentucky, was hit particularly hard by a tornado that the National Weather Service said stayed on the ground 227 miles through several states. That tornado started in the northeastern corner of Arkansas and moved northeast through parts of Missouri and Tennessee before tracking some 200 miles through Kentucky.

In addition to homes and other businesses, a candle factory in the town was leveled and more than 100 employees at work at the time the storm hit were feared dead. But on Sunday a spokesman for the factory said of the 110 people in the factory when the tornado struck, eight are confirmed dead and eight remain unaccounted for.

Here, by way of a drone, is a look at the devastation left in Mayfield, a town of 9,800 in southern Kentucky, just north of the border with Tennessee.
