A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Sunday evening for most of Eastern Kentucky. Another round of heavy rain is likely early on Sunday and could lead to new high water problems. Remember if you come across a flooded road way to "Turn Around, Don't Drown!"
Authorities say the state is allowing coal miners who fail or refuse drug tests to return to work without taking steps to ensure that they're not addicts who will compromise safety by being impaired on the job.
The Courier Journal reports as of late last week, more than 120 miners, most from eastern Kentucky, had been suspended for failed or refused drug tests.
Of the 66 who appealed their suspensions, 53 have had their certificates restored.
The newspaper says state officials are letting miners return to work without first investigating to determine whether they have criminal records related to drugs or alcohol or showed signs of substance abuse at previous jobs.
