Andy Beshear told CNN on Friday that at least 15 people were killed in the state's catastrophic Kentucky flooding

This number is expected to double, with children included

Rescuers are working around the clock to reach areas where flooding has washed away roads 

There is a lot of water and the current is so much powerful 

Some families' homes and cars were completely submerged or swept away by the Kentucky flooding

According to the Weather Prediction Center, there is a slight to moderate risk of flash flooding in eastern Kentucky 

Parts of West Virginia and western Virginia also experienced severe Kentucky flooding 

This is so deadly, and it hit so hard, and it hit in the middle of the night," the governor said 

Beshear said in a tweet that he sent a direct request to Biden for federal assistance for eastern Kentucky.
