A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Eastern Kentucky through Friday evening. Heavy rain is possible through Friday as a strong storm system moves through the mountains. Flash Flooding is likely during this time. Remember if you come across a flooded roadway to turn around and don't drown. Keep it with WYMT for the latest.
Officials in Floyd County announced Thursday that their law enforcement team will now have the benefit of a new E-Warrant system that Attorney General Jack Conway started in April.
The system will allow Floyd County to share information with more than fifty other rural counties around the state.
Conway says he expects warrant service rates to increase upwards of 80 percent with the new program.
It is being offered at no cost to local communities.
