WESTERN Ky. (KFVS) - Governor Andy Beshear visited western Kentucky Monday afternoon, August 1.

The governor spoke at the Mayfield Rotary Club luncheon, addressing the ongoing recovery efforts following December’s tornadoes.

At the luncheon, he also confirmed the death toll from devastating flooding in eastern Kentucky is now 35.

He warned that high winds could bring another threat: falling trees and utility poles.

The McCracken County Sheriff’s Office posted on its Facebook page that it will be collecting items on August 3 for tornado relief.

Later on Monday, the governor will be in Christian County where he will present funding for infrastructure improvements, including an expansion project for the Christian County Water District and expanded access to high-speed internet for Caldwell, Christian, Lyon, Todd and Trigg Counties.
