A Flood Of Support

Beginning July 25th over a foot of rain fell across eastern Kentucky triggering historic flash floods that caused havoc and damage on a scale that had never been seen.  Overall, 43 people perished. Thousands lost their homes or suffered massive damage. Roads and bridges were washed out or blocked with debris, isolating already remote areas.

Within days, AppalReD Legal Aid diverted administrative and VLAK staff to answer a hotline for flood-related legal help and to connect callers to local resources. Anyone needing legal help related to the flood should call 1-844-478-0099.
