The entire staff at Midland Radio is deeply saddened by the tragedy experienced by those in the wake of the tornado outbreak Friday, December 10.
 
The tornado outbreak ripped through six states including Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee.

 

LENDING A HAND

Midland Radio has donated $5,000 to the Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund to aid those impacted by the tornadoes and severe weather system.
 
“We would like to extend our thoughts, prayers and support to those affected by the devastation of the recent tornado outbreak in the state of Kentucky. Our gratitude goes out to all the first responders and medical personnel who were involved in the rescue effort. We hope our support will help those in need as the community begins to heal from this tragic event,” Midland Radio CEO, Dan Schwartz said.
 
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear established the fund after more than 70 people died and over 100 were unaccounted for following the storm. Beshear said Monday that over 1,000 homes in his state had been destroyed as a result of the severe weather.
 
The governor said the funds will first be used to provide burial expenses to families who lost loved ones in the storm. He also said those looking to give back should consider donating blood as well.
 
“Tornadoes in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee and Kentucky have devastated communities, but their hardy citizens will be building back better and stronger. Every donation gives a family or a business owner a helping hand.  I urge everyone to do what they can to assist, and to keep these great people in their prayers,” Midland Radio Meteorologist, Bruce Jones said.
