Many areas are still dealing with flooding, even as snow and sleet start to replace the rain. Some of the local major rivers are above flood stage and still rising. The good news is, many of the others have crested and will start to fall. The snow and sleet will continue through much of the day, before wrapping up tonight. Most areas will see several inches of accumulation. Keep it locked to WYMT for updates.
HINDMAN, Ky (WYMT) - Dozens of families in Knott County received food boxes Thursday.
First Baptist Church Hindman gave away the boxes full of staple food items like canned vegetables, cake mixes, and pastas.
Each family also got a $10 gift card to the local grocery store to buy a meat for the holidays.
"It just brings a sense of fulfillment in your own heart because it just takes away the selfishness that is a part of the Christmas season and people just wanting to get, get, get, and this is a great way to give," said pastor Mike Caudill.
The church gives away the food boxes every year at Christmas and Thanksgiving.
