KTVF Channel 11 and KXDF Channel 13, together with other GRAY Television stations, are teaming up with the Salvation Army to provide relief for those affected by the deadly tornado outbreaks that hit several states on Friday, December 10 and Saturday, December 11.
The Salvation Army is allocating resources to the affected states after multiple tornadoes killed at least 75 people in several states, including at least 64 in Kentucky. Dozens are still unaccounted for and thousands of resident’s homes have been damaged or destroyed.
The National Weather Service has confirmed at least 30 tornadoes touched down as a part of the Dec. 10 - 11 outbreak.
“Our hearts go out to the thousands of people impacted by these horrific storms. We know it will be a long road ahead for families and communities to heal,” said Gray Executive Chairman and CEO Hilton H. Howell. “It is without hesitation that we partner with The Salvation Army as they always go above and beyond the call of duty when providing disaster relief efforts to survivors and rescue workers. To help ‘Heal the Heartland’, Gray Television has made a $100,000 donation.”
