    Description

    During January 26-28, 2009, a winter storm dropped a mix of rain, ice, and snow from Texas across the Ohio River Valley and into New England. The storm caused multiple fatalities and millions of dollars of property damage and was called "the biggest natural disaster in modern Kentucky history" (Brammer and Funk 2009: 13). The storm disturbed an estimated 2.4 million acres of forest land across the central United States, including 2.1 million acres in Arkansas and Kentucky (Miles 2013). Ice accumulations up to 2.0 inches thick caused extensive damage to trees throughout the region.
