Death toll at 37 in EKY flooding; Biden to survey area today

In his latest report, Gov. Andy Beshear updated the continuing stabilization efforts following the historic flooding in Eastern Kentucky, announcing that the latest death toll stands at 37 in five counties.

Those include eight in Breathitt, two in Clay, 17 in Knott (including 13 adults and four children. The children are from the same family), three in Letcher and seven in Perry County.

Today, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden are scheduled to travel to Eastern Kentucky, where they will join the Governor and First Lady Britainy Beshear to visit families affected by the devastation from the recent flooding and survey recovery efforts at a local Federal Emergency Management Agency State Disaster Recovery Center.
