  • Storm victims should watch for letter from FEMA

     Some Kentucky disaster survivors may receive a letter from the Federal Emergency Management Agency which indicates more information is needed to determine eligibility for FEMA disaster assistance.

    Any letter you receive from FEMA should be read carefully.

    Here are some common reasons why FEMA may need additional information from survivors:

    • The applicant did not provide complete insurance information;

    • The applicant did not provide proof of occupancy or ownership of the damaged property;

  • Crash at intersection causes brief road closure

     A two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Lincoln Boulevard and Phillips Lane caused a brief road closure March 9. 

  • Septic tanks: Better to maintain than replace

     Many buyers when purchasing a home opt for an inspection to check structural soundness, plumbing, electrical and many other components to eliminate the surprise of underlying major issues. One thing that is often left out of this inspection process is the home’s septic system.
