According to the Kentucky Emergency Management website, donors for tornado-victims should make monetary donations instead of goods and supplies.

"Many agencies are at work right now in Kentucky to help storm-damaged communities. Storm-damaged communities do not need goods at this time. Cash donations are strongly encouraged to a charitable organization of your choice," according to the website.

The website has provided a list of organizations accepting monetary donations, as well.

Access to West Liberty has been closed off to residents and media only at this time, as well.

"Roads into town had been closed in order to conduct full search and rescue missions, as well as to clear debris so traffic and residents may travel safely.  Residents will be required to pass a safety check point for clearance before proceeding," according to a press release from the Commonwealth Joint Information Center.
