Citizens in nine southeast Kentucky counties are beginning to assess the impact of widespread weekend flooding. Damage estimates may available by midweek.
Five inches of rain fell over a 24 hour period in portions of Kentucky. One of the harder hit counties was Harlan. County Judge Dan Mosely estimates water got into more than ten homes. He says residents of the Tremont community were affected. “Basically the tile that goes from a community to the river, the water couldn’t get out because the water was so high,” said Mosely “And, it create like a dam affect.”
