 As of Tuesday, Kentucky's Governors Office launched a new website aimed at helping renters keep a roof over their head, while putting money back into landlords pockets.

The initiative called "The Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund" helps eligible landlords get reimbursed for missed rent payments, for eligible tenants, the program pays up to 90% of past-due rent. In some cases, two months of rent could be paid in advance.

The funds for The Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund were taken from $15 million in Federal CARES act money.

On Friday, Gov. Andy Beshear updated Kentucky's executive order on evictions to reflect the CDC's moratorium which protects renters both on the state and national level through December 31.

Governor Beshear says as of Tuesday more than 800 Kentuckians have started the application process.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
