WASHINGTON, 2nd August, 2022 (WAM) — At least 37 people died in devastating floods in the US state of Kentucky, German press agency (dpa) quoted Governor Andy Beshear as saying on Monday.

“We are ending the day with more heartbreaking news out of Eastern Kentucky. We can confirm the death toll has now risen to 37, with so many more still missing,” Beshear tweeted.

The governor went on to warn residents of the hard-hit Eastern Kentucky region that a series of complex storms would be moving through the area with the greatest threat overnight. The biggest concern is overnight flooding, he said, advising residents in areas that have suffered flooding to seek shelter on higher ground.
