Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
PILGRIM, Ky. (AP) - A new mobile clinic is getting medicine to the sick coal miners in remote parts of eastern Kentucky.
Doctor Raymond Wells helped create the clinic that visits five mines owned by Alliance Coal, an Oklahoma-based company.
The van is stocked with an E-K-G machine, a defibrillator and a multitude of vaccines and medicines. It also includes a video camera that allows Wells to examine his patients at the mine sites from his
office in Inez.
A spokesman for the Kentucky Coal Association says the program
may be the first of its kind in Kentucky.
