FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Several Kentucky state parks have earned a special designation from the National Weather Service for their storm readiness.

Ceremonies are set for July 9 to recognize the parks for their "StormReady" supporter designation.

The first ceremony will be at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park near Corbin. That park and Burnside Island State Park will be presented with certificates.

Later that day, three parks will be recognized at a ceremony at Pine Mountain State Resort Park at Pineville. Parks receiving certificates will be Pine Mountain, Kingdom Come State Park and Levi Jackson State Park.

To earn the "StormReady" designation, the parks developed a severe weather safety plan, trained staff members about weather hazards, identified storm shelters and developed procedures to make guests and employees aware of hazardous weather conditions.
