After a series of deadly tornadoes hit Kentucky last year, the overwhelming charitable response from many fronts has been "humbling," Bishop William Medley of the diocese of Owensboro, Kentucky, told Fox News Digital recently. Speaking at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Fall General Assembly in Baltimore last week, Bishop Medley said it will take "three or four years" to fully rebuild after the tornadoes' devastation.  On Dec. 10, 2021, tornadoes ripped through western Kentucky, killing 57 people and injuring over 500, Fox News Digital reported at the time.
