US President surveys flood damage in Kentucky


 US President Joe Biden surveyed flood damage in eastern Kentucky on Monday.

At a meeting with state and local officials, Biden said the devastation is “heartbreaking.”

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear tweeted on Sunday that at least 37 people had died and “the devastation is enormous.”

Biden had ordered federal aid to supplement Kentucky and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides.

Biden, 79, ended isolation on Sunday after testing negative for Covid-19 for two consecutive days. He traveled to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, on Sunday morning.
