Anniversary Of Lexington Flood Deaths

More Video...

This weekend marks the anniversary of a deadly flooding accident in Lexington.

On September 23rd of last year, two University of Kentucky grad students were swept away by high water on Nicholasville Road near Alumni Drive.

The bodies of Lauren Fannin and Lindsay Harp were discovered the next morning.

A handrail now stands near the site of the accident in an effort to keep something like this from happening again.

    These needless deaths can act to motivate a reluctant local government to take action to prevent similar tragedies or they can be ignored and considered just one of those things citizens of Lexington have to accept from an inept local government. There are thousands of similar locations where unsuspecting children and adults can be swept away in the numerous floods caused by inadequate storm sewer lines. The emphasis in Lexington is on contractor profits, not safety for the public. We will continue to be exposed to the risk of death in storms that frequent the area because of know improperly designed sewers and sewer inlets.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Harp and Fannin families as they mark the one year since the passing of their precious daughters. Losing a child is one of the most difficult of life experiences, but I hope that with each passing day the grief and hurt lessen just a little. Your beautiful girls are safe in God's care.
