The owners of Mayfield Consumer Products candle factory say every occupant in the building during the storm has been accounted for, according to Louisville Emergency Management Director E.J. Meiman.
“We have a high level of confidence that there is no one left in this building,” said Meiman during a Monday evening news conference.
They are conducting secondary accountability for those who were missing, and to see if they need assistance.
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said earlier Monday that eight people have been confirmed dead in the building, and Meiman said that number has not changed.
