PADUCAH, Ky. (NewsHour) — The tornadoes that swept through the midsouth region one week ago left thousands homeless and killed at least 77 people in Kentucky alone.

It was the single worst tornado disaster in that state’s history.

This weekend charities, churches and government agencies are focused on helping those who need shelter and supplies.
