Governor Steve Beshear surveyed the damage in West Liberty Saturday morning and said it was unlike anything he had ever seen.

He and Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson toured communities in Morgan, Magoffin and Kenton counties.

Beshear authorized the Kentucky National Guard to deploy to communities as needed to help with search and rescue, security, and traffic control.

And so far, more than 220 troops have mobilized to help after the storms.
