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.
FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Officials with the Middle Creek National Battlefield are trying to make it a national park.
The battlefield is currently under the operation of the Middle Creek National Battlefield Foundation, but officials say becoming a national park could benefit the region in several ways.
"We would see an increase in tourism. We would see jobs, and we would see an increase in our economic development just from the establishment of this one park," said Founder and President Frank Fitzpatrick.
Officials say it could take a few years before the battlefield might become a national park.
