Stay classy, Chris.
It’s no longer a secret what’s going on in eastern Kentucky right now.
Historic flooding has claimed 37 lives and counting, and hundreds of Kentuckians remain missing. Thousands and thousands are without shelter, electricity, food… basic necessities like soap and toothpaste.
Homes were destroyed, roads and infrastructure were destroyed, and even cell service was down.
Corresponding courier journal, President Joe Biden has authorized a major disaster declaration to provide federal emergency assistance to relief efforts in Breathitt, Clay, Floyd, Johnson, Knott, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, Owsley, Perry, Pike and Wolfe counties.
It’s a devastating scene and more rain is expected today and tomorrow and pretty much for the rest of the week.
We end the day with more heartbreaking news from eastern Kentucky. We can confirm the death toll has now risen to 37 with so many more still missing. Let us pray for these families and come together to hug our fellow Kentucky people. ^ AB
