Crowds Pose Problems for Responders

Swarms of onlookers, volunteers and, in a few instances, looters have posed a big challenge for emergency responders after the tornadoes that devastated Kentucky last Friday, local leaders said at a meeting Tuesday. Emergency responders have received praise from residents on up to the governor in their response to the severe storms, which killed four in Kenton County and 22 statewide. But county leaders on Tuesday said they will look at how they might better handle the large crowds that come in the wake of a disaster.
