Sixteen People Dead After Tragic Flood In Kentucky; Death Toll Expected To ‘Get A Lot Higher’

Sixteen people have been found dead following a tragic flood in Kentucky.

The death toll has reached 16, and it’s expected to “get a lot higher,” according to Kentucky’s governor Andy Beshear. The number of deaths could get to 30, Fox News reports.

Some of the victims include a 79-year-old man and a 65-year-old woman from Letcher County, a 76-year-old from Clay County and an 81-year-old from Perry County. Search teams and the National Guard have been searching for more people, saying there’s no sure answer on how many victims haven’t been found.

The floodwaters and mudslides impacted more than 20,000 people in eastern Kentucky. At least 23,000 residents still don’t have power, reports Fox News.

The National Weather Service (NWS) says more rain and storms may be on their way. “More rain and storms arrive Sunday through Tuesday, with heavy rainfall possible Sunday and Monday,” said the program.
