DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. (WFIE) - To help the many people who are still trying to sort through issues that arose during the December 10 tornadoes in western Kentucky, a recovery expo was held in Dawson Springs.

They’ve assembled many groups that can provide assistance for people who were affected by the storms.

Several groups attended the event, including Hopkins County Adult Education, Habitat For Humanity, The American Red Cross, Kentucky Legal Aid, Pennyrile Area Development District and many more.

Leaders said they hope it will help people get in touch with assistance groups to both learn what kind of help is available and what they need to do to get it.

“So many people don’t know who to go to,” said Mike Duncan, who helped organize the event. “Now they may run into somebody they never thought about.”

Organizers also handed out free weather radios to residents in Hopkins County.

Organizers said they hope to plan similar events elsewhere in the county.
