Sen. Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, received a bird’s eye view of the damage caused by tornadoes in Grant County and other parts of Kentucky.
Once he learned of the damage in Crittenden and Piner, Thayer contacted Gov. Steve Beshear’s office.
He subsequently was invited to fly in a Kentucky National Guard Black Hawk helicopter Saturday as the governor assessed storm damage across the state.
They first landed in West Liberty in Morgan County, which Thayer said was without a doubt the hardest hit area in the state.
