  • It is difficult to be completely prepared for some of the severe weather in Kentucky, especially the recent tornado outbreak.  However, advanced planning can help ensure your loved ones and your property will be as safe as possible if disaster strikes.

    The same concept of preparation applies to woodland owners managing their property after storm damage.

    Kentucky woodland owners should learn about safety in storm-damaged woods, storm timber assessment, types of damage and locations that can affect salvage intensity and timing.

  • I was heartbroken to hear of the loss of life and property from the storms that ripped through parts of Kentucky on March 2. To those of you who were affected, my family and I hold you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Many of you lost your homes, your businesses, your vehicles, and other property in the storms. You are frustrated, and you just want to get back to some sense of normalcy. Neither I nor anyone else can make the pain of loss go away. But there are sources of aid to help you in this difficult time.
