Flooding Concerns Continue

Flooding in eastern and southern Kentucky is continuing to cause problems even though the water has receded a bit..

Governor Steve Beshear made stops in several counties to look over the devastation there on Tuesday.

In Floyd County, Beshear and several representatives toured the city of Martin and tried to find ways to get some people better shelter by declaring a federal disaster area.

The governor also saw flood damage in Breathitt, Owsley and Pike counties. A total of 14 counties have been declared states of emergency.

Shelters are still open at locations in Floyd, Breathitt and Pike counties for people displaced by flooding.
