Many Students of Piner Elementary in Kenton County were affected by the severe storms and tornadoes that swept through the region March 2nd.

The Northern Kentucky University Student Government Association, Office of Student Life and Scripps Howard for Civic Engagement are collaborating to provide the university community with opportunities to help tornado victims in our region.

The multiple tornadoes that touched down in our region recently caused property damage , hundreds of injuries and deaths. And spring could bring more turbulent weather.

As deadly and destructive storms whipped through parts of the Midwest Friday, Piner, Kentucky was especially hard hit.  By Sunday afternoon there were 20 confirmed fatalities in the state, four of those in Kenton County.

WNKU’s Cheri Lawson reports now the community’s focus is recovering from the physical and emotional damage .
