Beech Tree Media accepting donations for storm victims

Although only minor damage was reported in the county from the severe weather systems that moved through the area last week, some towns in Kentucky were not so lucky. As a result of this devastation, Kentucky State Police posts have begun collecting supplies for those affected by the storms and tornadoes that moved through the state. KSP will be accepting donations now through Saturday, March 10. Beech Tree Media, in a way to help in these efforts, will accept donations and deliver those donations to KSP Post 3 in Bowling Green. Bring your donations to the Beech Tree Media office, located at 107 W. Ohio St. in Morgantown, from 8 am to 4 pm now through Friday.

Some of the destruction in Salyersville

West Liberty in Morgan County and Salyersville in Magoffin County were among the hardest hit areas in the state; both cities suffered severe damage as a result of the line of storms tearing through their area. Beech Tree President Diane Dyer and husband Elwood have close ties to Salyersville. Diane lived there for a time and Salyersville is Elwood's hometown.

"Luckily, none of Elwood's family was injured or suffered any major damage to their homes," said Diane.
