More heavy thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon across eastern Kentucky. While they are not expected to be as widespread as the past few days, they will be slow movers and could cause more flooding in areas that are already saturated.

One of the main roads into the town of Cumberland Gap, Tennessee could be closed for months!
A rockslide happened Tuesday near a site where workers were clearing dirt. Those same workers were still on the job Wednesday despite the slide.
A federal inspector was on scene this morning but declined to comment. The town has its own engineers looking into it.
"Not good news, we've got our engineers up there right now evaluating the situation. When they give us a report back, we will make a decision about what direction we need to go next to remedy this problem," said John Douglas, Cumberland Gap Mayor.
The mayor said he is hoping the state will put up digital signs to alert drivers to the alternate route.
