State of Emergency Declared In Kentucky
Last night Western Kentucky experienced some of the worst tornado damage we’ve seen, and we are urging everyone to please stay safe as there are still active cells.
I have been in direct contact with local leaders and emergency management officials from the communities impacted, including Mayfield. I’ve declared a state of emergency and activated the Kentucky National Guard and the Kentucky State Police, as well as the deployment of additional assistance through the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
I will personally be in the area as soon as it is safe to travel. We are praying for you Western Kentucky and all of the commonwealth is with you.
