Bath County prepares for flooding

BATH COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Rain in Bath County is causing a concern for officials. The area was put under a Flood Watch on Thursday. Emergency crews are watching several areas with low spots that flood easily. Leaders say they want residents to be prepared and to avoid water on roadways.

Low-lying roads will flood if the county gets more than two inches of rain.

"You don't know when you drive into a road, where the road used to be, if the road is still there. It could be washed out," said EMA Director Stephanie Stewart.

The flood watch continues until Friday afternoon. Officials expect the rain to switch to freezing rain Friday night. Crews will then dispatch to treat roads.
