FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Three more state parks in Kentucky are about to gain the designation as "StormReady Supporters."
Paintsville Lake State Park, Carr Creek Lake State Park and Yatesville Lake State Park are to be recognized next Monday.
Officials from the National Weather Service and the state Parks Department will attend a ceremony at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park at Prestonsburg.
Lake Cumberland State Resort Park was the first park to earn the designation in April 2010. Since then, the number of "StormReady" state parks in Kentucky has risen to 16.
By having the "StormReady" designation, a park can monitor weather, has a trained staff, can communicate weather warnings to guests and employees and is able to provide shelter. The park also has to be able to communicate with state and local emergency management offices for assistance.
