The United Cajun Navy is coming to the rescue of the storm-ravaged residents of Madisonville, Kentucky.

Todd Terrell, president of the United Cajun Navy, says the organization has more than 350 volunteers ready to go.

He says they're loading up big rigs with supplies the folks in Kentucky may need in the days after the deadly tornadoes.

The trucks are loaded with cleaning supplies, blankets, jackets, gloves, tarps, chainsaws, and other necessities.

Two Louisiana nonprofits are also working together to help people affected by the tornadoes in Kentucky.

New Life Missions collects donations year-round in a warehouse in Independence, so supplies are ready to go when disasters happen.

Another nonprofit called Transport Ministries bought a semi last year, and somebody donated a trailer.

They hauled supplies to victims of Hurricanes Laura and Ida and on Monday, a truckload of emergency supplies hit the road for Kentucky.
