Dramatic video from flooded eastern Kentucky shows person being rescued by helicopter from rooftop towering over flood water.

The National Guard has conducted more than 1,000 rescues through airlifts in eastern Kentucky after the devastating floods, Gov. Andy Beshear said Sunday.
The governor announced on Monday that at least 30 people had died. He has repeatedly said the death toll is expected to rise as dozens remain missing.
More flash flooding was possible Monday in parts of the Appalachian Mountains as recent storms rolled through, the National Weather Service said. Rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour were possible in some of the same areas that were flooded last week.
A dozen shelters for flood victims were open in Kentucky with 388 residents as of Sunday, according to FEMA.
