Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Bell, Clay, Harlan, Jackson, Knox, Laurel, Leslie, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Wayne and Whitley County until 11 p.m. While the worst of the weather held off this afternoon, it looks like we will still see some strong storms later tonight, generally between 8 p.m. and midnight. These storms will likely feature strong winds and hail, with heavy rain and an isolated tornado (mainly possible in the Cumberland Valley/I-75 corridor) being the secondary threats. Keep it locked here for the latest.
A new ordinance could mean a Harlan county city could seize property that's too dirty.
Evarts city officials tell us the proposed ordinance would allow them to seize vacant properties that have not been properly taken care of.
They say there is a procedure that would involve a written notice... then if the notice is not followed, the city would have to file suit to seize the property.
The mayor says it's an effort to cleanup the city.
