One week since Kentucky tornado outbreak

Friday marks one week since tornadoes devastated Kentucky, killing 23 people across the state.

In one of the hardest-hit areas, officials in Morgan County plan to hold a news conference at 5:47 p.m., the time one week ago when the tornadoes struck.

The Morgan County Emergency Operations Center plans to update information about contractors, volunteer services and donations.

Because of the massive destruction of last weeks tornado, the county's headquarters has relocated for the time being.

"It's chaos, it's just chaos everywhere we look. But we've kept ourselves together by working with everybody," said Morgan County Judge Executive Tim Conley.

From a 7 p.m. curfew, to a new system of identifying who needs to be in the hardest hit areas, Judge executive Tim conley has crossed into new territory along with the residents of west liberty.

"It's gonna be a slow process, and it's not the same as it was," Conley said.

"But God will see us through, and out of the ashes, something good will come out of this," Conley added.

Conley says he sees promise of the towns return to what it once was, just a week ago.

FEMA will meet with residents in West Liberty tomorrow morning starting at 7.
