N.C. Baptists have completed more than 210 jobs helping people in Kentucky recover from a major ice storm that hit the state Jan. 27.

Volunteers from N.C. Baptist churches have served about 516 volunteer days, clearing downed trees and providing nearly 300 showers, according to Gaylon Moss, who coordinates disaster relief for N.C. Baptist Men. They have seen seven people make salvation decisions, he said.

More than 30 people died and hundreds of thousands lost power as a result of the ice storm. At one time, more than 90 of Kentucky’s 120 counties were under emergency declarations.

N.C. Baptists have been in Kentucky since early February. Most of their work has been in Stanford and Livingston County, which is northeast of Paducah.
