(UNDATED) - Indiana equipment is headed down to Kentucky to help in disaster relief.

Indiana Department of Homeland Security Spokeswoman Rachel Meyer says Kentucky officials made contact Sunday morning requesting vehicles to help in their disaster recovery following last weeks winter storm.

Officials collected 100 humvees from National Guard armories around the state. The vehicles were taken to New Albany, Evansville and Camp Atterbury and Kentucky National Guard Troops flew to Indiana to drive the vehicles back down south.

Meyer says the state is still in good condition to respond to any request for aid within the state should the need arise.

Meyer says a five-member team from Indiana is also working in Kentucky in their emergency operations center. The team consists of 3 members from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, one Indiana National Guard member and one member of Indiana Task Force One.
