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.
MANCHESTER, Ky. (WYMT) - He first thought he'd become the next president of Kentucky's Senate without any opposition.
Manchester Republican Robert Stivers will face a challenge from independent senator Bob Leper of Paducah.
Stivers is currently the majority floor leader in the senate.
Stivers said he thinks he has enough support among lawmakers to become senate president, but he also says anything can happen.
“A lot of things still to go through, a lot of things, still to happen, in the next few weeks. I look forward to whatever position I may hold within the senate,” Stivers said.
Senate republicans will elect their new leader next Tuesday, that person is expected to become senate president.
The winner replaces David Williams, who resigned his seat to become a judge.
