Stole this from another thread

This proves what is most important in life - preserving it. All the rancor over games played by kids and young adults is pointless and a waste of time, energy and bandwidth.

Tennessee National Guard have been real life savers in Eastern Kentucky. They rescued 224 people. Thank you.

Thanks to West Virginia National Guard too.

At least 1,432 Kentuckians have been rescued by first responders from Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia.

The Kentucky National Guard rescued 404 individuals by aircraft.
The Tennessee National Guard rescued 224 by air.
The West Virginia National Guard rescued 36 by air.
Nineteen people and two dogs have been rescued by boat by the Kentucky National Guard.
Kentucky State Police has assisted or is assisting in 624 water rescues.
Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources has assisted in 125 water rescues.
“We are so grateful to all those responders, and a special thank you to the Governors and the Guard of Tennessee and West Virginia,” Gov. Beshear said.

So why are you posting on a board devoted to something you consider a waste of time, energy, and bandwidth.

I don't understand the people who come to this board to complain about this board.

Seems like most people were rescued by Kentuckians.

Seems like a shitty time to try to punch down.

Edit:
Meant that for Smokeyone, not yo OP.

I know someone who's child died. Try to time your snarky comments for attention at a time where kids didn't drown to death.

You're probably better than that.

It’s a Tennessee fan, what do you expect? Bunch of backwoods idiots whose brains work at about 1/3 the capacity of a normal human. He probably jacked off on the thought that he was burning a UK fan when In reality he just proved my earlier statement about brain capacity.

Middlesboro, Bell Co, Harlan etc. are as accessible to us (maybe more so) than they are to the Kentucky side. My cousin used to work rescue in the area and both sides were always involved if anything went wrong in or around the tunnel (including the tunnel fire years ago). Middlesboro is often served by help from Tennessee and Middlesboro Hospital (while small) in turn serves a few border counties. But even before the tunnel if anyone remembers the old way of going from Middlesboro to TN it was a nightmarish drive that dipped into Va for a moment and came out in TN and all sides had to help if something went wrong on this stretch (if you know this path you understand why).

UT Hospital serves as the major hospital for much of Eastern KY, especially for trauma.

I'm used to seeing Downtown Middlesboro underwater. It's somewhat common because it's built in a bowl surrounded by mountains and Yellow Creek but this much flooding in the region is not normal at all. I'm glad folks are coming together to help.

These floods happen every few years in Kentucky. Not down playing this at all but they will recover, rebuild, and see this again in a couple years. This is the 4th year in a row for Kentucky flooding, just later in the season this year.

They happen regularly in Middlesboro because it's in a crater but the surrounding areas are also flooding. That's not normal at all and it's really effecting the region.

East, TN would be having the exact same issues were it not for TVA. And even with it, we still have flood control problems at various times.

I know there have been salty replies but don't dig in on this one. It really is bad in the region right now and it's far worse than just downtown Middlesboro getting hit (as bad as that can be people are used to that happening and know how to deal with it somewhat).

These are some of the poorest counties in the country. They don't deserve this and many won't recover from it.

No worries, it's just some poor white folks that are suffering.
If this were affecting another demographic, say if it threatened some culcha, it'd be hands across America for them.
Kanye would be telling people how the President hates culcha. There'd be millions of dollars poured into the reconstruction.

But, I guess the great people of Appalachia will just have to use their white privilege to rebuild.
