Randy Travis is sending love and prayers to the people impacted by the devastating floods in Kentucky.
The country music icon shared a chilling photo across his social media accounts on Monday evening (Aug. 1), showing three wooden crosses standing in the treacherous floodwaters.
“There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway/ Why there’s not four of them, Heaven only knows/ I guess it’s not what you take when you leave this world behind you/ It’s what you leave behind you when you go,” Travis wrote, referring to lyrics to his 2002 chart-topping hit, “Three Wooden Crosses.”
He added, “Keeping all of the victims and the families affected by the awful flooding in eastern KY in our prayers 🙏🏼.”
Heavy rain has unleashed flooding in Kentucky’s Appalachian mountain communities, destroying homes, displacing families, and killing 37 people, according to the latest report from NPR.
Thousands remain without power as the National Weather Service warns that showers and thunderstorms could impact the area once again on Tuesday with the potential for additional flash flooding.
“It is absolutely devastating out there. It’s going to take years to rebuild. People left with absolutely nothing. Homes that we don’t know where they are, just entirely gone. And we continue to find bodies of our brothers and sisters that we have lost,” Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said during a briefing on the situation on Tuesday morning.
More than 8,000 residents in Eastern Kentucky are without power and over 25,000 are left without water, according to CNN.
Hundreds of Kentucky residents remain unaccounted for and the death toll is expected to rise.
“We are still looking for people, and sadly we are still finding those bodies,” Beshear told CNN late Monday.
Governor Andy Beshear established the Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund to assist those impacted by the floods and severe weather in the area. More information, including how to donate, can be found HERE.
