Heavy rain is beginning to fall across much of the area, leading to some localized flooding in several counties. Flood Warnings are already out for most of the area through later this afternoon. A Flood Watch continues for everyone through tomorrow night. A Winter Storm Warning goes into effect later today for most of the area. The rain will start to transition to freezing rain/sleet and snow by later this evening, generally between 8 p.m. and midnight. Keep it locked to WYMT for updates.
It's being billed as the most awesome event in Hazard's history. The event, called "The Most Awesome Event in Hazard History" is tomorrow at the Perry County Public Library.
Author Sam Neace helped organize the event and there will be a book signing for his new book "Go, Sam, Go." Pete Turner will have a book signing for his "Whisper" book series.
The event will also feature blues music and an art gallery. All artists and artwork presented at the event will be from Eastern Kentucky.
I think Eastern Kentucky artists are very important and they're not publicized as much as what you see in the larger cities. Anyway we can promote that artwork and musicians, artists, performers. The public library is here to do that," said Elaine Couch, the Director of the Perry County Public Library.
The event starts at noon and lasts until nine tomorrow night.
