Once again, the people of our Commonwealth have been devastated by a natural disaster – this time, horrific flooding in Eastern Kentucky that has taken at least 35 lives.

All of us at the Louisville Bar Association are shocked and saddened by this sudden loss of life and by the swift and violent destruction of so many communities. Our hearts go out to the people of Eastern Kentucky during this difficult time, and we are ready and willing to offer whatever help we can to make sure our fellow Kentuckians can follow this period of grief with a strong recovery.

To help provide financial resources to those in need as quickly and directly as possible, we ask all members to consider donating to the Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund at www.TeamEKYFloodReliefFund.ky.gov.
