Severe weather looks likely on Saturday afternoon. The best chances appear to be between 2 p.m. Saturday and Midnight. Damaging winds, large hail, heavy rain, and an isolated tornado or two are possible. The area at the greatest risk for severe weather in eastern Kentucky is in the Cumberland Valley, near the I-75 corridor. Keep it locked here for updates.
Troopers with Kentucky State Police Post 10 in Harlan spent the morning making sure some local kids will have a good Christmas.
Each child got to spend 150 dollars at the Shop with a Trooper event.
Kids had to buy a winter coat and a book...with the rest, they could buy whatever they wanted.
"They get to see a different side of the state police. We are here to take them around and have a good time," said Walt Meachum.
State police say they also plan to hold Shop with a Trooper events in Barbourville and Middlesboro later this week.
