Scores of volunteers have surged into Menifee County to clear roads of fallen trees, secure people's property and begin cleanup after Friday's tornado swept through this rural area. By 6:30 a.m. Sunday, Marietta Flannery was in the kitchen of Botts Elementary School on Ky. 460 with a half-dozen volunteers to start cooking breakfast for displaced families and work crews. County leaders met at 9 a.m. Sunday in the fire station to draft a plan of action that would ensure the best use of volunteers. "You can't give nobody enough credit for what they're doing. I can't say enough for how citizens have pitched in to help," Menifee County Sheriff's Deputy Donnie Fugett said.
