HARLAN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – Free cleaning supplies were handed out to people in Harlan County today, following the destructive recent flooding. 
Lowe’s and Kentucky State Police say they just want to give those impacted, peace of mind. 

Emergency officials say Cawood Branch was one of the areas hardest hit by high water. After hearing people need help, Lowe’s teamed up with the Kentucky State Police to give out free cleaning supplies.

"You know they’re going through rough times. And to have to deal with this every day, to have to get their homes straightened back up, that they can come to the Kentucky State Police post, right here in the parking lot, and show them ‘hey, we care.’" Trooper Shane Jacobs told LEX 18.

About 50 homes so far have been given supplies. The list is expected to keep growing
