Biden hears 'heartbreaking stories,' vows federal help during Western Kentucky storm damage tour

Karyn Czar

WUKY's Karyn Czar spent Wednesday in Dawson Springs covering President Biden's tour of storm ravaged Western Kentucky. She filed multiple reports which you can hear here.

In the tiny town of Dawson Springs, President Biden stood at a podium on the street, with tangled trees and crumbled homes as his backdrop.

He prayed with Pat and Philip Bruce in front of their mangled home. They lost a sister in the storm and almost everything they own.

Biden approved funds to pay for 100% of emergency costs in Kentucky for the first 30 days. That will help pay for debris removal, shelter and overtime for essential workers.
