Death toll rises to 28 in Kentucky as new rains fall


Tonight, eastern Kentucky was hit again with up to three more inches of rain. Isolated flood threats have plagued the region, which is still recovering from the devastating floods. Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear visited the disaster zone. The governor says more than 600 people have been rescued by air alone since the flood began. So far, 28 Kentuckians have died. 70 trailers bought during December’s destructive tornadoes were moved to the flood zone to house the displaced.
