Kentucky Flood Response

What happened?

On the night of July 28th, massive rainfalls caused the creeks and rivers of southeastern Kentucky to rise 7-10 feet within a few hours. Thousands of homes were damaged and the death toll is over 35. Large areas lost power and public water. In some areas it will take weeks to restore public water. We sent in a team and are currently organizing volunteers for cleanup.
