Last month we shared the devastating drone footage from Owensboro storm chaser Christopher Conley showing the damage from the fatal tornado that swept through Western Kentucky. Now we're sharing a birds-eye view of Bremen and Dawson Springs, Kentucky 30 days later.

After deadly tornadoes hit Western Kentucky on December 10, 2021, residents in Bremen and Dawson Springs were left to pick up the pieces. Families have lost everything from their homes, vehicles, barns, belongings, and even important documents. With great sadness, reports began to emerge that 25 beautiful souls lost their lives after the historically-long tornado tore apart these two rural communities. It's hard to comprehend how they'll even begin to rebuild after so much loss. It could take years to recover from the devastation that the tornado left in its wake. Our thoughts and prayers continue.

When bad weather is due to hit the tri-state, my friend Christopher Conley goes into storm chaser mode. He works with local news outlets to report what's happening in the skies to help keep people safe. Just days after the tornado struck, Chris who's the owner of 270 Drones Aerial Imagery, took his drone over Bremen and Dawson Springs to survey the damage. What he shared was nothing short of catastrophic.

Now, he's sharing the progress that has been made 30 days later. There's still so much work to be done, and help is needed.
