Flood Watches Issued In Some KY Counties

The heavy rainfall on Friday morning sparked some flood watches across the state.

Rising flood waters caused some problems in Fleming Count. The flood watches were issued for streams and creeks across the county.

Fleming Creek and other small creeks in the area are at flood stage and water is spilling over others as well.

A few roads in the area even saw some minor flooding. The rain is expected to let up as the day goes on.

    Pass this information on to the people that need it most. The flood is coming and you’ve got less than 24 hours to build barriers. Imagine building your next 300’ flood fighting barrier in less than 8 hours with two men and a pick-up truck, being able to put up a mile of 3’ high barrier in 17 hours with a ten man crew. You can do it for about ½ the real installed cost of sandbags, the first time and for 1/10th the cost for the next 20 years. Since you live where it has flooded before, you can pretty much count on it flooding again. Sandbags take tremendous amounts of manpower, time and disposal. They are centuries old technology and fail in case after case to provide the protection needed. Lack of time, lack of manpower, and the lack of logistic support make it impossible to adequately protect property from floodwaters. The USACE has its problems, but they're a hard working organization. Wait for them and it's over a decade to completion. www.floodwalls.com for a better option
