NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! On Monday, the death toll in eastern Kentucky reached 37 after severe flooding obliterated entire communities and tore families apart.
At a media briefing on Tuesday, Gov. Andy Beshear reported that more remains had been discovered the previous night.
He then gave a warning about other isolated storms that might affect the area, saying, “Let us pray for these families and come together to wrap our arms around our fellow Kentuckians.”
Beshear added that numerous further residents are still missing.
Kentucky is expected to experience more rainy weather this week and the next week.
The governor also issued a warning, stating that impending risk from extreme temperatures and high winds could make it more difficult to complete tasks.
“I understand that you could be striving to save whatever you can, but please be extremely cautious. We bring in truckloads of water on Wednesday and Thursday when it becomes hot “explained he.
Following the terrible flooding disaster that began last week and dropped 8 to 10 1/2 inches of rain in only 48 hours to Kentucky and parts of Virginia and West Virginia, rescue and recovery efforts are still in progress.
More than 10,000 people in Kentucky and more than 21,000 in Indiana were still without power as of Tuesday morning, according to the tracker PowerOutage.US, which followed storms through the Hoosier State.
17 water systems are still running with limited capacity as well.
Curfews have been imposed in Breathitt County and Knott County because to allegations of looting, hundreds of people are staying in shelters, homes and vehicles have been entirely submerged.
There have been no detentions.
“Although I detest having to enforce a curfew, looting will not be condoned under any circumstances. The losses to our friends and neighbors are immense. We cannot watch as they lose what little they still have “Brendon Miller, the county attorney, stated in a Facebook post.
Beshear estimates that the flood damage will cost “hundreds of millions of dollars.”
Instead of dialing 911, people are advised to contact their nearest Kentucky State Patrol station to report a missing person.
