3:07 pm
recovery effort now that means they've given up any hope of finding more survivors. >> i know it is very tragic i do want to tell everybody that my colleagues and i have written a letter from a illinois delegation to request an emergency declaration from president biden and we are in touch with fema and red cross and i think everybody's doing what they can in a think will continue to pray for our friends and neighbors and look for ways to help. there is a call for people to give blood and on how they can help their communities. >> what about the town of edwardsville itself we've been focused on the amazon warehouse but what about the town itself, how is he doing. >> i toured around my district

3:09 pm
rip. eric: so much damage and heartbreak in an instant during the holiday season. congresswoman mary miller represents the edwardsville area, thank you. jon: we want to head to arkansas aishah hudson since is the tornado operate has killed two people in his state, fox whether hunter davis is live in leachable arkansas. >> were about 8 miles from arkansas where we spend our day yesterday at the nursing home where one of the two deaths have happened. the other two at the dollar general. we'll take it this way so we can show you the damage. it was very believable when we pulled up on the scene to see all the devastation.
3:10 pm
they were getting power restored so the closing up shop and navigating toward the damage. here at the dollar general inside, one of the employees died during the storm there was flowers hanging there they have been blown off or falling down the putting into perspective life lost, time moving quickly, you can see a pretty good junk of damage, inside the dollar general now completely exposed the building basically caved in on itself. as we get to the backside this is what we want to point out.
3:11 pm
if you look at the tile this is where the building, you can see the tile in the wall, this is the foundation stepping up the building pushed this direction, showing us how strong the storm was. this had to be ripped out of the foundation for the building to be pushed this way you can see the marks where this was dragged across the tile as the storm moves through we've been exploring this out today and every single time i take a lap we discover something new but this moment has been the jaw-dropping moment for us throughout the day. you get to see all of the metal thrown together pushed into the center of the building and to imagine how strong the storm was when it came through in this area. this is an eye-opening picture.
3:12 pm
if we move this way we think this is a stocking area because you see the backstock, you could see the other side of where the building was the mirror image of what we showed you on the other side, how far the structure was pushed off of the foundation. this is been completely cleared by portions of the building as we move this direction 30 yards over the barbecue restaurant that was also right in the line of the storm. just outside of the restaurant, it's fallen over the inside of this truck this is a tree that was rooted and is been ripped from the root you can see right here it's gone to the undercarriage of this truck you can see the top coming out to
3:13 pm
the undercarriage and eye-opening moment for how strong the windsor tornadoes were were waiting for the national weather service to confirm what did this damage but when he sees things like this is hard to believe it's anything less and what residents are saying definitely are tornado that came through the area. jon: had to be unbelievably frightening, hunter davis live in leachable arkansas. thank you for the tour. for people in tennessee are dead one person is missing after a dozen tornadoes touched down. locals jump into action trying to repair the damage the storms did to hundreds of homes multimedia journalist is live outside of nashville and kingston springs tennessee with more details. >> what you see behind me is the steeple of the baptist church, it's tossed in the parking lot as if it was made of paper
3:14 pm
members telling me this is an important refuge in the moments after the tornado hit and congregation members saying this is a sunday like no other. this seems immediately around the church is worse take a look at the video 60 - 80 homes in this neighborhood alone this is one of several that has been badly damaged by the series of storms. lots of tarps on roofs if there's roofs left at all. he huddled inside his home with his family as the tornado lifted his home completely off the foundation in move you forward 40 feet. something he says i'll never forget. the national weather service confirming six tornadoes have touched down in middleton, that is not counting the deadly tornadoes led to the death toll in west tennessee. as you travel between memphis and nashville all along interstate 40 you can see the landscape is daunting with places where the tornado hopped
3:15 pm
the landscape zigzagging at times. power is a big concern for a lot of communities in tennessee. i want to show you what's leading to the power outages issues. this is a video from paris and tennessee of the kentucky border, a major tva transmission tower. these lines are what they did for electric cooperatives so they can send them to homes and businesses. when towers like this it's a major undertaking to get them restored. there several counties who do not have direct damage from the tornado outbreak. there are effective because so many areas are without power with the major lines being down just like this one. all of this happening as another cold nice hudson. jon: fox whether multimedia journalist, thank you. complete storm coverage you want to download hour by hour update

3:31 pm
government of tornado victims, an emergency declaration for kentucky and says he'll be ready to do the same for other states as needed david spunt is live at the white house with more on all of that. >> the president is also at the white house as evening. he continues to receive updates from the storm ravaged states and small towns. today the whole insecurity secretary and fema administrator to kentucky where they are right now. >> i make it perfectly clear that we are here physically today and but we will be here tomorrow and the days and weeks and months ahead until the recovery is complete. >> i want you to know the nation, your country is praying with you today for your speedy recovery and for all the tragedy that you've endured. >> president biden served and signed an emergency disaster
3:32 pm
declaration for kentucky that frees up tens of millions of dollars immediately to help with the recovery, the president returned from wilmington, delaware this afternoon i specifically asked him about kentucky on the south lawn and he confirmed he will be visiting soon. the president said yesterday he would visit kentucky, he did not what to be a burden. with the president traveling he brings footprints from security to advance personnel, his answer solidifies he is indeed going to kentucky but we do not know when, waiting to get more details i want to note that the president set on camera to americans, and a disaster like this were not republicans or democrats we are americans need to help each other out. jon: david spunt live at the white house. the white house is linking the
3:33 pm
economic troubles to the cover pandemic. this amid shrinking support for president biden on economic issues. in the abc news poll finds majorities of americans disapprove of the handling of inflation the economic recovery and taxes republican senator marshall joins us with the senate committee on health, education, labor and pensions. in just a moment the jen psaki sound that i stepped on because she had something interesting to say and i want to get your reaction. first tell us about the inflation situation and we see the blame is lying. >> the number one problem that were hearing from folks back home, a 39 year high created by joe biden think about his
3:34 pm
policies that causes inflation he borrowed an extra $3 trillion on top of the regular 5 trillion so they're spending money like drunken sailors think about the energy policy we shut off the supply by pipeline by stopping julie nonpublicly and in making it hard to borrow money and finally his pain people were to stay home then to go to work. that created labor shortage in supply chain problems as well. joe biden owns this inflation problem. jon: his spokeswoman jens action saki says it's covid. >> what we see people psychology on the economy and other expensive things in the country right now is related to covid and the fact that were still in a fight against this virus people expected to be over sooner. we have new variants that have come up and people are looking
3:35 pm
to get back to a normal version of life. that's our best assessment. jon: i would suppose that you could say pain people to stay home which is maybe a necessity in the early months of the cover pandemic, that might cause inflation but is it responsible for everything that we are seeing. >> that's why we call her jen psaki spin because she protects the president. 92% of americans have a level of immunity to the virus i think it is time to stop blaming covid and they should blame exactly where default lies on borrowing too much money on pain people to stay at home and stopping energy covid has nothing to do with stopping the pipeline and drilling on public lands, this is on the back of joe biden. jon: i want to put on the string the wall street journal poll results on how people are feeling about the economy right now 30% say it's going in the
3:36 pm
right direction more than twice as many 61% say it's going in the wrong direction. but about 9% said they did not know that the negative pole on what is perceived to be the president's primary interest to the state of the economy. >> i'm surprised is not worse my phone blows up every time 70 goes to the grocery store, have you been to the grocery store lately to fill your truck up i have dodge ram at cost $100 to fill my truck up right now. it's disproportionately impacting people on fixed incomes, seniors and young families living paycheck to paycheck, inflation is a social injustice. jon: my ford f150 does not like going to the gas pumps these days, i'll tell you that. looking at inflation numbers from november of 2022 november
3:37 pm
of 21. some of the increases are eye-popping baking of 21% stake is up 25%, gas is up 60%, furniture 12%, sporting-goods 8.4%, how does this turnaround? >> we need different policies we have to stop borrowing and spending more money they can about what the democrats want to do now joe biden wants to borrow another $5 trillion from her grandchildren already in addition to the annual budget of the five and 3 trillion easily borrowed as well we have to stop these and incentivize people to go back to work not stay at home at the civil economics we have to disrupt the supply chain to get people back to work. this is not hard arithmetic very simple getting back to basics will do it. jon: your fellow senator amy klobuchar a democrat is promising they can get the build back better bill passed through the senate before christmas
3:38 pm
cannot happen and should happen? i think joe biden's going to listen to the people -- joe manchin is going to listen to the people of west virginia who don't want more inflation or borrow more money, joe knows he's a politician and the people west virginia will not support this in kyrsten sinema is feeling the same heat they don't want more inflation. jon: republican senator, thank you. the crisis at our southern border turning deadly as authorities crackdown on human smuggling. a ticket life to the border to show you what is going on. next. the experts at safelite autoglass came right to me... with service i could trust. right, girl? >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪
