Flash flooding in eastern Kentucky has caused loss of life, major damage, and general disruption for hundreds of families.
Rural communities in Rowan and Johnson counties are some of the hardest hit areas. Joanna King is executive director of the eastern Kentucky Red Cross Chapter. She says aid goes beyond meeting physical needs. "The Red Cross offers mental health counseling for people who are having a rough time with the situation that is going on," said King. "We have volunteers who are trained to assist with that as well."
