Gov. Beshear launches tornado relief resources website
By Crystal Staley/Scottie Ellis
Frankfort, KY - On Wednesday, Gov. Andy Beshear launched a new website, governor.ky.gov/tornadoresources, to better assist those impacted by the tornadoes and the severe weather systems that occurred overnight Dec. 10 in Western Kentucky.
"We want to make sure that every Kentuckian hurting from and impacted by the tornadoes can easily access the information they need to rebuild and recover from these storms," said Gov. Beshear. "We are committed to the folks of Western Kentucky, and we won't be here just this week or this month, but we will be here every single day for however long it takes to rebuild every building and every life, to get everyone as close as we can to where they need to be."
The website provides a listing of information from a large number of state government assistance programs, including how to apply for unemployment, health care coverage, food assistance, driver's license replacement and long-term housing. It also provides steps on how to remove debris, submit a claim to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and how Western Kentuckians can locate needed resources, such as temporary shelter, hot meals and relief hotlines.
The tornado resource website will be updated as needed when information is available or revised.
