Gov. Matt Bevin declared a statewide emergency Friday, in response to the severe storms that battered Kentucky last week.
A powerful weather system with torrential rain, hail, flash flooding, straight-line winds, and tornadoes tracked across the Commonwealth on Tuesday, Feb. 28, and Wednesday, March 1, resulting in injuries in some parts of the state and significant property and infrastructure damage.
