LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - WKYT is partnering with The Salvation Army to help victims of the devastating tornadoes that tore through the state early Saturday.

Thousands of residents in Kentucky are without heat and water after deadly tornadoes ripped through the area, leaving at least 74 people dead. There were at least 14 deaths in Illinois, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Missouri. These southern communities have a long road to recovery ahead of them.

When you support The Salvation Army disaster services, 100% of your donation is applied to the disaster survivors in those communities.

The Salvation Army has been working around the clock to mobilize response teams to prepare and respond to needs around the following impacted areas in Kentucky:

  • Serving meals from Jennings Creek Elementary School in Bowling Green
  • Providing meals in Madisonville
  • A mobile incident command post has been established at Mayfield High School
