Flash flooding causes problems in Wayland


WAYLAND, Ky. (WYMT) - Yesterday's flash flooding caused problems across Floyd County including the Wayland community.

Heavy rains overflowed streams into people yards and homes.

It left mud and debris behind and even caused part of a road to collapse.

No injuries or major damage to homes has been reported.

"The rain came down so fast that it stopped up a lot of our culverts and stuff, and our culverts weren't able to handle it. We've got problems everywhere in our district," said Floyd County Magistrate Hattie Owens.

Officials are not sure how long it will take to clean up the mess.
