Swiftwater search and rescue teams from Kentucky are heading to North Carolina to help rescue people once Hurricane Florence hits the east coast.
Two dozen firefighters from Louisville left Frankfort shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday. They will stay in Raleigh, North Carolina, while Hurricane Florence makes landfall. After that, they will be deployed to rescue people from anticipated flooding.
"They are going to do what neighbors do and neighbors take care of each other," Gov. Matt Bevin said. "It is important, it really is, to appreciate what it looks like when states take care of one another."
