To the northeast, a similar warning was in effect for Johnson and Martin counties.

The eastern Kentucky counties of Breathitt, Floyd, Magoffin and Morgan were also warned. A broader flood watch was effective until Monday evening for much of the eastern region.

Rainfall was forecast to end Monday over Kentucky.
