A warning for people affected by the recent storm outbreak.

Officials with the Kentucky division for air quality say for people to be aware that materials in debris could contain asbestos.

They say to wet down all debris from damaged buildings until final disposal to prevent the possible release of asbestos.

Asbestos is commonly found in many building materials including roofing shingles, ceiling and floor tiles, pipe insulation and flame-retardant products such as asbestos cement.
