WASHINGTON — On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman James Comer (R-Ky.) recognized the one-year anniversary of the devastating tornadoes that struck Kentucky’s First Congressional District on December 10th and 11th, 2021. In the aftermath of the storm, Kentuckians came together, delivered aid when many needed it most, and began the process of restoring our local communities. Congressman Comer emphasized that his office remains committed to assisting the ongoing recovery efforts.
Below are his remarks as prepared:
I rise today to recognize the one-year anniversary of the devastating tornadoes that struck my district.
On December 10th and 11th, 2021, communities from Fulton to Taylor County endured a fierce long-tracked tornado that leveled numerous communities. The damage sustained during the relentless storm was unimaginable, and our prayers are still with families who lost loved ones.
In the aftermath of this disaster, Kentuckians across the Commonwealth came together to offer help, provide support, and deliver aid when many needed it most.
As the communities continue to rebuild and recover, I want to recognize the local servant leaders and citizens who are helping get our communities back on their feet. As we continue to move forward, I am inspired by their courageous efforts to restore our local communities.
Serving the people of Kentucky’s 1st Congressional District is an honor, and my office remains committed to assisting their recovery efforts in every way.
