Mudslide in Floyd County caught on tape

More Video...

FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A mudslide in Floyd County Monday was captured by a nearby surveillance camera.

The video shows a mudslide near Highway 680 in the Grethel community.

I-witness viewer Darcy Howell shared the video with WKYT and WYMT.

In the video, you can see mud, rocks, and a large piece of a hill slide into a shed.

Some equipment was even washed out of that building because of the force of the mudslide.

A dog was also caught up in the mudslide, but people living nearby tell us it was not injured.

Homeowners Joice and Darcy Howe are glad their little friend made it out alive.

"He was scared last night, still shaking all over, he was so scared. But, he's overcoming it now," said Darcy Howe.

Three people are also okay, after being rescued from a home in the Slick Rock community.

Flood waters there turned streets into rivers at McDowell Elementary. Faculty, staff, and volunteers are cleaning up a thick coat of mud from the school parking lot and classrooms.

As for the puppy caught in the mudslide, he's been renamed Lucky.
