BENTON, Ky. (WTWO/WAWV) – Benton was one of the towns hit by a tornado as severe storms blew in Kentucky.

“Helping His Hands Disaster Response” from Vincennes is in Benton taking part in clean-up efforts.

Director of “Helping His Hands” Scott Shipman and volunteers travel around the country providing manpower and disaster related items to those in need.

Shipman said in Benton they’ve been busy cutting trees and cleaning up debris.

“Every direction of where I’m standing, houses are either completely gone or so heavily damaged that they’re not even safe to go into,” said Scott Shipman. “A lot of trees are down.”

The 15 to 20 “Helping His Hands” volunteers will be in Benton until Thursday.
