Heavy rain causes flooding, rock slides in parts of eastern Kentucky

Flood Warnings were issued Friday night for much of eastern Kentucky.

Flooding in Pulaski County

BREATHITT COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - In parts of southern and eastern Kentucky, heavy rain and flooding were bigger issues than ice and snow Friday.

Part of Highway 30 near Jackson, in Breathitt County, had to be closed Friday night because of a rock slide.

Police say heavy rain loosened rocks on a hill, causing them to fall onto the road.

Road crews cleaned that up, but a short time later, more rocks fell onto the road.

Other rock slides were reported elsewhere in eastern Kentucky Friday night.

High water was also reported over roads in Laurel and Pulaski County. A WKYT iWitness viewer sent us a picture of a Jeep stranded in high water in Pulaski County.
