Kentucky storms that caused flooding, mudslides, power outages, damages to public and private property and road closures prompted Gov. Ernie Fletcher to declare a state of emergency.
The severe weather which spread across Eastern Kentucky on April 14,
affected property in counties including, but not limited to Floyd, Knott, Lawrence, Leslie, Martin and Pike.
The executive order declaring the state of emergency was signed April 25.
Since the date of the storms, state emergency management officials have been evaluating and monitoring the situation with county responders. The Governor’s order now allows the final part of coordination with federal officials to be completed.
