Devastating flash floods have killed at least 25 people in the Appalachia region of eastern Kentucky – the worst such disaster there for decades.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear said he expected the death toll to continue to rise. He said hundreds of homes and businesses had been flooded.

President Joe Biden has declared the floods “a major disaster” and ordered federal aid to help local rescuers.

Among the dead are at least six children, including a one-year-old.
