LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The country's Homeland Security chief will visit Kentucky next week as part of a three-state tour to observe the federal response to the ice storm.
The U.S. Homeland Security Department says Secretary Janet Napolitano will visit Kentucky, Kansas and Iowa in her first trip as secretary.
Napolitano, whose department includes FEMA, has said she's spoken to Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear a number of times since the beginning of the storm last week.
A statement says Napolitano will survey areas damaged by the storm, which knocked out power to more than 760,000 homes in Kentucky at its peak.
