In one of the largest tornado events in United States history, more than 30 tornadoes have been reported in at least six states, including Missouri, Tennessee and Mississippi.

Strong winds collapsed a candle factory in Kentucky, an Amazon warehouse in western Illinois, and a nursing home in Arkansas.

A tornado hit the Mayfield Consumer Products candle factory Friday night while people were working.

Kyanna Parsons-Perez, trapped in the factory, used Facebook live to plead for help before she was rescued.
