#CityImages would like join All Americans to remember those families throughout the central U.S. who are victims of the 36 tornadoes..

Also, the public safety officers and members of the news media spent the night keeping people informed and updated to stay as safe as possible during a horrific night of extremely severe weather. It is at times like this that the most important purpose of our jobs comes out. We proceed as if limits to our ability don't exist. Dozens killed as tornadoes rip through Kentucky, other U.S. states
