Statement as of 1:33 PM EST on March 06, 2015

... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 500 PM EST Friday for
southern Laurel... Knox and Whitley counties...

At 130 PM EST... emergency management and State Highway garages
continue to report several roads closed due to high water in the
warned area.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
London... Williamsburg... Barbourville... and Corbin.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.
