Gov. Andy Beshear

Gov. Andy Beshear prepares to present keys to state-provided travel trailers to the first Dawson Springs families Friday morning at Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park. Two hundred trailers will be provided to families displaced by the December tornadoes.

Gov. Andy Beshear presented the keys to three travel trailers to families in Pennyrile Forest State Park on Friday morning as the first part of getting 200 trailers to families displaced by the December tornadoes.

The travel trailers will provide what Beshear described as “medium-term” housing for displaced families for the next six months, with potential recertification each month. Beshear said the state can ask FEMA to extend the program for another six months, giving families about a year of housing while their towns recover from the tornadoes.
