In the southeastern region of Kentucky, homes, offices and communities have been destroyed. Power and electricity is out and roads are impassable. The governor called it “one of the worst, most devastating flooding events” in the state’s history. The Catholic Church and other faith-based organizations are pledging to help for the long-term.

Joining Currents News to talk about how the Church is helping in the relief efforts is Edward Bauer, Director of Communications, for the Diocese of Lexington.
