Governor Steve Beshear returns to the mountains to see more damage after this weekend's flooding.

After visiting counties in the Big Sandy Region earlier this week, the governor is in Breathitt County tonight, to get an up close look at what people there are dealing with.

Beshear says Highway 30 is one of the hardest hit areas in the county.

He promises flood victims that the state will do whatever it takes to help them rebuild and start over.

People who lost everything in the flood say they need help sooner, rather than later.

The governor and Congressman Hal Rogers have asked President Obama to declare a federal disaster area in 19 Kentucky counties.
