Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
Two parents are indicted on abuse charges in Floyd County after police say they found children living in filth.
Prestonsburg police say last month, Shawn and Amber Cordle's five children were covered in rashes and blisters due to the living conditions in their apartment.
Police say two special needs children were kept in a room with string tied to the door to keep them from leaving.
The Cordles are charged with five counts of criminal abuse, five counts of endangering the welfare of a minor, and two counts of unlawful imprisonment.
They pleaded not guilty to the charges.
They are scheduled for a pre-trial conference on January 13th, 2012.
