While the worst of the weather held off this afternoon, it looks like we will still see some strong storms later tonight, generally between 8 p.m. and midnight. These storms will likely feature strong winds and hail, with heavy rain and an isolated tornado (mainly possible in the Cumberland Valley/I-75 corridor) being the secondary threats. Keep it locked here for the latest.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Hundreds of people have packed the Capitol rotunda for an annual rally to focus attention on the needs of Kentuckians with disabilities.
The event, which spans much of Tuesday, included remarks from Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear, who encouraged the attendees to "let your voices be heard."
Beshear told the crowd he's helped protect funding for mental and behavioral health programs in the face of continued budget cuts and reduced socials workers' caseloads among other efforts to help Kentuckians with disabilities.
The rally was sponsored by the United 874K Coalition, which is composed of organizations representing individuals with disabilities, their families, advocates and providers. The group of several hundred attendees also planned to meet with their local lawmakers during the event.
