Resources for Kentuckians Affected by Friday’s Tornadoes

Resources for Kentuckians Affected by Friday’s Tornadoes

My staff in Kentucky has been on the ground surveying the damage from Friday’s tornado devastation. They have compiled the following information to share with affected Kentuckians and opportunities for those who wish to volunteer or donate items. Please share this information with your friends and neighbors. As more information comes in, we will send additional updates.

I would also like to offer my deepest sympathy and prayers to the families of those who lost their lives and all those affected by these horrific storms. I am dedicated to serving the people of Kentucky and it is times like these our state motto rings most true, as communities come together united for the good of the Commonwealth.

– Senator Rand Paul
