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.
As the recovery continues in storm damaged counties, folks in one area say they're no longer in need of donations.
Laurel County will stop taking donated items after Saturday. They've been taking items at a center setup at the Old Elmo's Furniture building in East Bernstadt.
The center will remain open for another few weeks, so storm victims can pickup items already donated. They'll have until Wednesday, March 28, to pickup those items. The center will close after that date.
Donated items not taken by storm victims will be donated to charity organizations in Laurel County.
