Officials from the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Louisville will commemorate Metcalfe County in Kentucky as StormReady(R) County at 11amCT, Monday, March 15, 2010 ceremony, at the Metcalfe County Courthouse, 100 Stockton ST, Edmonton, KY.

Only two of the state's colleges and universities, the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky, are designated as StormReady(R) universities at present.
