A Nicholasville man is heading to Illinois to help with clean-up for Sunday’s storms.  This is not the first time Chris Ardery is helping in a time of need.

Ardery is a former National Guardsmen who went to Joplin, Missouri twice in 2012 and a year ago Tuesday, he left for New York to help with Super Storm Sandy relief.

As soon as Ardery saw the destruction from yesterday’s storms, he told the Red Cross he wanted to help.

“Just to know that I’m giving the community, whether it’s at home or in another state or even in another country, just to be able to give things back to people is a wonderful feeling,” said Ardery.

Ardery will be in Illinois for about two weeks.

Kentucky Utility is also sending help.  150 crew members left Monday morning headed to northern Illinois and southern Michigan. They will stay through the end of the week helping to restore power.

“We all know that we’re going to go through this at one time or another.  That none of us are going to get by,” said Cliff Feltham, spokesperson for KU.  “When you have outages of the considerable size like they have in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan you can’t do it yourself.  You know you’re going to need to get help from wherever you can get that help.”
