The National Weather Service said at 5 p.m. Thursday (July 28) that flood watches would remain in effect for much of Eastern and south-central Kentucky through Friday night.

"Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations," the NWS warned. Creeks and streams may burst their banks. Flooding can occur in areas with poor drainage and in urban areas."

With hundreds of families expected to lose their homes due to the floods and severe weather, the fund was established to assist those affected. The governor described the situation as "dynamic and ongoing" on Thursday, predicting "massive property damage" and "double digit" deaths.


"I wish I knew why we keep getting hit here in Kentucky." I wish I could tell you why people in low-income areas continue to be hit and lose everything. I can't tell you why, but I can tell you what we do in response. And the answer is, "Everything we can," said Gov. Beshear in a statement. "Today, everyone has the opportunity to help through the Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund."

Our Eastern Kentucky families require assistance. We established the Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund today so that people across our state and country can assist our families in need. The website is now operational. Each and every dollar counts.
