Kentucky floods kill eight people and kill more, Governor says

(Reuters)-Floods in eastern Kentucky have killed at least eight people, Governor Andy Beshear said Thursday. Deaths are expected to reach double digits as water continues to rise. Bescher, who declared a state of emergency in six counties on Thursday morning, was hit by a series of storms in the eastern part of the state that caused water that had not yet reached the summit to fall, leaving damage that could take years to repair. Said that. Among the dead is an 81-year-old woman from Perry County, who says Thursday night, although the exact numbers are not yet known, some people have not been explained.
