LINCOLN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX18) – The Kentucky Baptist Association is sending a convoy of volunteers into the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

“This unit that’s going here, is strictly kitchen. Each kitchen is its own individual. We can go as a group and do 30,000 a day or we can split them up and each one will do 15,” Feeding Coordinator, Karen Smith said.

They don’t know exactly where they’re headed, but they anticipate the devastation will be tremendous.

Karen Smith has worked disaster relief for decades; she saw first hand what major hurricanes like Harvey and Katrina did to the Gulf Coast.

“You don’t have anything physical. And so many people that physical part, at the moment, means so much to them.”
