Homeland Security Chief Urges Vigilance in Kentucky

Louisville, KY – Kentucky's Homeland Security Director is calling
on residents of the state to be vigilant as the nation's
terror alert remains high. Director Ray Nelson of
Kentucky's Office for Security Coordination is urging
people to keep their eyes and ears open so they
can report anything unusual to law enforcement
officials.

However, Nelson also stresses that Kentuckians
should resist living in fear amid the heightened
alert. Kentucky airports stepped up security and
State Police have bolstered some patrols after the
nationwide terror alert was raised to code orange.
