On July 13, an Ohio Valley flood devastated parts of southern Indiana and eastern Kentucky. Among the four known casualties was Scott Johnson, a Johnson County resident who reportedly saved several residents before he was lost in the flood.
An estimated 120 homes were destroyed. Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear declared a state of emergency, which will make state funds and resources available to those affected by this flooding.
