Kentucky flooding death toll rises to 37 as governor says hundreds remain unaccounted for.
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear said on 29 July 2022 that “the flooding situation in Eastern Kentucky is ongoing, with a flood watch in effect through today. Heartbreakingly, we can confirm at least 15 deaths, but we expect that number to grow. Over 23,000 Kentuckians are without power.”
