* Flood Warning for...
rain and snowmelt in...
Lee County in southeastern Kentucky...
Fleming County in east central Kentucky...
Menifee County in east central Kentucky...
Powell County in east central Kentucky...
Montgomery County in east central Kentucky...
Morgan County in southeastern Kentucky...

Estill County in east central Kentucky...
Rowan County in east central Kentucky...

* until 400 PM EST Wednesday

* at 653 am EST... Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
that heavy rain was falling over the area. That heavy rain will
cause flooding. Up to one inch of rain has already fallen since
midnight and up to another inch could fall by mid afternoon.
Rainfall rates of one quarter to a half of an inch per hour on
saturated ground will likely overwhelm ditches and culverts. Small
streams and creeks should also flood with this additional rainfall.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Mount Sterling... Morehead... West Liberty... Stanton... Irvine...
Flemingsburg... Owingsville... Beattyville... Sandy Hook...
Frenchburg... Campton... Marshall... Henry... Lewis... Jeffersonville...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.
