(Updated 8/3): How to Help: Eastern Kentucky Flood Victims

Earlier this week, counties in Eastern Kentucky were hit with another devastating weather disaster as heavy rain flooded several communities in Appalachia.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has already reported more than 35 deaths, and said he expect the toll to continue to climb as rescue efforts continue to save people trapped in homes. Beshear also says they are prioritizing monetary donations, cleaning supplies, and bottled water.
