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 with the West Virginia Sheriff's Association sent us this statement on Wednesday afternoon.
"We are stunned and devastated at this situation. When someone walks up and shoots the chief law enforcement officer of the county it knocks you back. We are currently gathering information and waiting for more details. We are just asking everyone to please pray for Sheriff Crum's family and the law enforcement community as we sort out the information."
