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.
Folks at KCEOC are getting ready for Thursday's open house in Corbin.
The agency has converted the Old Corbin Hospital into a 16-unit apartment complex for the elderly. Monday, crews brought in furniture for the open house.
Officials said the community needs a facility like this one.
"That was one of the key points of doing a project like this, to bring affordable, comfortable living arrangements for people that are low income and elderly in our community," said Jennifer Smith, Vice-President of Program Operations for KCEOC.
There is already a waiting list for the complex. The agency hopes to start filling it August 1st.
