Kentucky flooding

The death toll from last week's devastating flooding in Kentucky rose to 35 Monday as a round of severe storms threatens to bring further rainfall, high winds and even flash flooding to residents still trying to find their footing.

At a press conference Monday morning, Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said that five days after the flooding began, a minimum of "hundreds" of people remain unaccounted for in the state. The death toll is still expected to rise as search efforts continue this week.

"That's going to grow," he said. "We know about additional bodies beyond these 30 confirmed."

Rain and flood warnings, as well as a threat of high winds and hail, are complicating recovery and search efforts, Beshear said. All areas of the state impacted by the flooding are under severe storm potential Monday.
