Tornado Relief Efforts Organized

Some individuals and organizations are focused on helping their fellow Kentucky residents recover from deadly weather that hit Eastern Kentucky on Friday. Central Kentucky was largely spared from the destructive force of the tornadoes that killed at least 21 people and injured hundreds more in Morgan, Menifee and other counties, but Kelly Votaw of Harrodsburg has first-hand experience with the aftermath of the devastating weather events. She was part of a group that went to Joplin, Mo., last year to help with the massive recovery effort there and is currently working from the list of items that were needed there in the immediate aftermath.
