"Elaine and I are praying for the families of the victims and to all those who have been affected by these terrible storms that hit Kentucky over the past two days. My office has been in contact with the Governor's office and I will continue to closely follow developments to help wherever we can. Finally, I want to extend my gratitude to the first responders, including the Kentucky National Guard, who are providing the much-needed response and relief."

You can help:  The American Red Cross will collect monetary donations at the KFC Yum Center on Saturday night before the Jimmy Buffet concert to benefit the Kentucky and Indiana victims of Friday’s tornadoes.  Volunteers will have collection points set up on the plaza at 5 p.m. Cash and checks will be accepted.

Kroger stores throughout the region are also teaming up with the American Red Cross as collection points for cash donations to the American Red Cross Disaster Fund.  Customers can donate any amount they wish as they purchase groceries. Their donation will be added to their total and will be listed on their receipt.

Northeast Christian Church is taking donations to help Henryville. They are accepting bottled water, non-perishable food, clothes, blankets to be donated to Red Cross. (Address: 9900 Brownsboro Road Louisville, KY 40241)
