INDIANAPOLIS — On Saturday morning, Indiana Task Force 1 was activated to help with search and rescue efforts in Kentucky, after tornadoes Friday night.

In a briefing held early Saturday morning, Gov. Andy Beshear said at least 50 people were killed in the state, but those numbers may end up “closer to seventy to a hundred lost lives.”

According to Indianapolis Fire Department Battalion Chief Rita Reith, 45 Task Force 1 members will depart at 3 p.m. on Saturday. Task Force 1 will be headed to Mayfield, a city heavily damaged by the storms.
