Mud, Rain, Debris, Hamper Search for Kentucky Flood Victims...

Scott Johnson was swept away two days ago trying to save his 74-year-old grandmother as a flash flood ravaged this rural eastern Kentucky community. He remains among the missing. Johnson's sister, Veronica Marcum, said the family has been searching relentlessly for some sign of the 34-year-old. Kentucky State Police said Wednesday, two people have been confirmed dead and at least two others last seen in the floodwaters remain missing. The fate of four others remains uncertain. Rescue teams are slogging through knee-deep mud and wooded, mountainous terrain, slowly trudging door-to-door as desperate families wait for word.
