Providing shelter, food, water and cleaning supplies. At least 8 dead and multiple people missing in wake of flooding, power outages in eastern Kentucky. Rescue workers plucked people off rooftops amid fast-rising water Thursday in central Appalachia, where torrential rains unleashed some of the worst flooding in the state's history. This is an ongoing natural disaster, with more rain expected tonight that could worsen the situation. Hundreds of properties could be destroyed, and the flooding is historic and ongoing. Hundreds will lose their homes, and this is going to be yet another event that it's going to take not months but likely years for many families to rebuild and recover from. The situation is dynamic and ongoing. In most places, they are not seeing receding water. In fact, in most places, it is not crested yet. There are a lot of people in eastern Kentucky on top of roofs waiting to be rescued. The storms hit an Appalachian Mountain region where communities and homes are built on steep hillsides or down in the hollows between them, where the only flat land often shoulders creeks and streams that can rise in a hurry.
