A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Eastern Kentucky through Saturday morning. Heavy rain is possible through Saturday 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.
It's a plan that keeps kids studying even when school is not in session due to bad weather.
WYMT's Maisie Insko talked to officials with Knox County Schools about their "Snowbound Project."
Winter weather can create terrible driving conditions...especially for schools here in the mountains
Knox County School system plans to avoid these risks and still receive in school credit with a state program called Snow Bound.
There are three options on snowbound days:
• Parents can drop their child off at the nearest school to them so their student can do their work.
• If you have internet access at your home your child can just complete the assignments over the web.
• Students can stay at home at do things the old fashioned way by completing an educational packet.
Both parents and teacher's feel this program is going to be successful
Other schools in our area taking part in the program are Letcher, Powell, Wolfe, and Owsley County Schools.
School officials say if they don't use up their ten days this winter they can save them for the spring when flooding tends to occur.
