  1. Saddening. RIP 🙏🙏🙏 and hope everyone will be alright. These are serious matters and yet Republitards are taking away veterans aid to get back at democrats. Horrible.

  2. The government needs to build a coast to coast flood canal to prevent these kinds of disasters.. N.S.E.W. if they can build railroads and interstates.. They can build a canal.. Instead of sending the money they steal from us to other countries to fight in wars that we have nothing to with.. They could put our money into building a flood prevention canal!

  3. I don’t want to sound mean, but I looked at the history of flooding in this region of kentucky. There have been many attempts to build dams that would prevent these floods and would provide hydro electric power. Folks need to decide flood the gorge and build a lake. or get these floods every 50 to 100 years that will destroy everything in the paths of the forks and river. Its pretty much that simple.
    I’m sorry for people losses and the deaths.

  4. death toll here in southeast Kentucky is now 18, at least six children. According to the weather experts, we're expected to receive another six inches of rain here in southeast Kentucky. Here in Letcher County, Kentucky, we have two of those deaths. Here in downtown Jenkins in Letcher County, the flooding has receded, and the mud, water and trees have been cleared; but, you can see some serious damages in certain places. We finally got our power and internet back on last night, and we got our water back this afternoon. I can't say the same for the other places in and around Jenkins. Yesterday there were a lot of men driving four wheelers and carrying around chain saws who were going up hollows everywhere to saw down trees in the road. The town of Hindman is pronounced with a long "I" sound, not a short "i" sound. You pronounce it like Hine dman. These reporters should know how to pronounce the word "hind", and then all you do is just add the word "man" to it. So simple. From all the photos and videos I've seen I think Hindman/Knott County looks like the worse hit more so than Hazard or Jackson. These reporters are all the time using Hazard and Jackson. I guess that's because Jackson is where the U.S. weather station for southeastern Kentucky is and Hazard is a little over 20 miles away from Jackson.

  5.

  7. Please turn to Jesus. True peace is found only and through the prince of peace him self Jesus Christ. These are the end times repent!

  8. Kentucky cannot catch a break. Last year it was the devastating tornados now it's flooding. It will take YEARS to come back from this. I live a mile from a lot of the tornado damage (Breman, KY) and it looks as if the tornado just went through (Dec 11th was the date of the tornado) we haven't even began to rebuild. It's just devastating to sooo many ppl. 💔 💔💔

  9. The good and faithful Kentucky people need new senators. Wow and both senators from Kentucky don't believe it. Mr.Paul, Don't believe in free money.

  11. I feel so sad for the people who lost their homes. Too bad Rand Paul is their Senator though, he is against FEMA aid & seems to think people should not be helped.

  12. And…praying doesn´t help. Reduce your CO2 footsteps, travel less by plane and by car, use public transportation, quit using air condition. And so on…
