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.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - An eye surgeon turned U.S. senator is keeping his medical skills sharp by doing pro bono eye surgeries for the uninsured in Kentucky.
Republican Rand Paul is scheduled to remove cataracts from four patients in Paducah on Tuesday.
Paul was a longtime ophthalmologist in Bowling Green before he was elected to the Senate in 2010. The tea party darling said Tuesday that he has found his pro bono work during Senate recesses to be especially rewarding. Many of his patients have had extremely poor vision because, lacking insurance, they have put off treatment.
Paul said they end up being "the happiest people you'll ever meet."
