The US President Joe Biden delivers remarks on the response to flooding in Eastern Kentucky, on Monday, August 8. On the same day, Biden will visit families affected by recent flooding, survey impacts and response efforts. Beginning on July 24, and lasting for a week, several areas of the United States were impacted by numerous flash flooding events. These areas included parts of Missouri and Illinois, especially Greater St. Louis, Eastern Kentucky, Southwest Virginia, parts of West Virginia, and the Las Vegas Valley. Devastating floods killed at least 37 people in Kentucky, left more than 12,000 households without power, and hundreds of homes and businesses have been flooded. The damage to roads, bridges and other infrastructure will cost millions to repair.
