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.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - It's the season in which people often open their wallets and give to help others, and Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway wants residents to make sure their money will be used to help those in need and not to benefit a scam artist.
Conway says donations to reputable charities can provide clothing or food for people who are struggling, but fraudulent groups take advantage of donors and prevent those who need help from receiving it.
Conway recommends donating to groups you trust, beware of unsolicited emails that appear to come from a legitimate charity but which may be an impostor and be cautious of solicitors who can't answer your questions.
