I feel for the victims who lost everything. I couldn’t imagine what it’s like and wouldn’t want to. May God strengthen the families who lost loved ones and bless them to either recover or move away. Everyone read Matthew chapter 24.

I don't like McConnell and what he is doing. I've been watching the opiod epidemic and the joblessness in Kentucky. Yet, the time I spent there in my youth, the beauty, the people, salt of the earth, has stayed with me and my heart goes out to them, as my prayers do also. I hope and pray that out of this devastating flood, just as in the case of Noah, that lives will be changed for the better. That hope will be renewed. That jobs and industrys will return and that Mitch will either be replaced or realize that one Nation, not divided by red, blue, so called right (NOT), and playing politics, has real consequences. He may be so divorced from reality of the wonderful people of Kentucky at this point and thinks that he can continue to pay them off for votes, that he's beyond redemption. But I believe with all my heart that the kind of people I met there and got to know will rise above, take a stand, listen to that still small voice and make Kentucky the beautiful and amazing place for every kind of person, be they rich or living up the hollar, that I remember. May God be with you, comfort you, strenghten you and stay close to you, as you recover from the flood. God bless.

Sorry. For all you climate change deniers out there, all we have left in stock are inflatable Hunter Biden laptop floaties. Are you interested in any of those? $45 each.

I hope folks at Kentucky start to take Climate Change more seriously and not a hoax like the many who keep voting for Mitch McConnell.

Richard Landgren August 4, 2022 - 7:05 AM

I want to feel bad for them, but they just keep rebuilding in the same place while expecting a different outcome. That's crazy, and unfair to taxpayers.

Natural disaster caused by americans!

Where is Justice August 4, 2022 - 7:22 AM

Rebuild? For what? Soon another disaster will destroy everything again. This is caused by climate change. GOP is the biggest denier of Climate Change. Keep voting for them and you all will receive the Mother Nature Rage.

Why pelosi is not here?

Charles Hughes jr August 4, 2022 - 7:23 AM

Truly tragic, I'm in North Carolina and have experienced flooding from over 15 direct hurricanes in 40 years, it destroys everything and rips your life away and rebuilding takes years each time. I visited Ashland Kentucky a few years ago and fell in love, this used to be small town life now it takes 45 minutes to commute 6.5 miles and desperately want to finish life in the Appalachian mountains, hopefully I can volunteer with clean up efforts in exchange for a job since all I know is carpentry,flooring,gutters and window replacement and glazing if anyone reads this and knows how I could relocate to Kentucky and help just leave a comment. It would be an honor to help people whom have lost family friends and all belongings
