The last year has been anything but easy for Kentucky, with every season leaving a major crisis in its wake.
First, there were last fall’s high winds from the remnants of Hurricane Ike. The winter, of course, will long be remembered for a devastating storm that turned out to be the most expensive in Kentucky’s history. During the spring and summer, torrential rains led to flash floods, first in Eastern Kentucky and then in Louisville.
This fall, it appears the major challenge for the state will focus more on health rather than weather.
