US: Seven children, including two infants, were killed on a single street in Kentucky when a ferocious nighttime tornado ripped through the area, a report said. Within a few blocks of the town of Bowling Green, 14 people were killed with 11 of them, including the seven children, all on Moss Creek Avenue, the Associated Press reported.

The area has been left in ruins with homes totally destroyed and reduced to rubble.

“I just think about all those babies,” local resident Melinda Allen-Ray told the Associated Press.

Allen-Ray told the news outlet that she has barely been able to sleep since early Saturday when the tornado alerts sounded.

She carried her grandchildren into the bathroom as the tornado ravaged the community around her.

“I heard them — it traumatized me,” Allen-Ray said of her neighbor’s screams. “I think about that each night when I go to sleep, when I do sleep.”

One family in the area lost six people, including a 16-year-old girl, a 4-year-old boy and another child, the AP reported.

Nearby, a 77-year-old grandmother was killed and two other neighborhood residents died from their injuries at an area hospital, according to the news outlet. Multiple tornadoes roared through the South and Midwest late Friday night into early Saturday.

Dozens of people were killed with at least 80 fatalities in Kentucky alone.
