President Biden will head to Kentucky today to survey the damage left by killer tornadoes.
Thousands are still without power, water and heat.
The deadly tornado outbreak spanned more than 200 miles and caused major damage in six states in the Midwestern and Southern U.S. As many as 100 people are feared dead, and many more were left homeless.
