With all of the rain Katrina brought, it’s not surprising much of our area is under water.
Department of Transportation officials warn the dangers of crossing flooded streets.
"A lot of times I don't think people realize how fast the waters moving... it can sweep your car away," Public Info. Officer Keirsten Jaggers said.
A section of Russellville Road in Bowling Green floods several times a year. Officials say they’re trying to secure funds to fix this part of the road but say it’s a problem they can’t change anytime soon.
Here are some tips for traveling in flooded areas:
-Do not attempt to cross-flowing water
-If your vehicle stalls, abandon it and seek higher ground immediately
-During threatening weather listen to commercial radio, TV or NOAA Weather Radio for Watch and Warning Bulletins
-Know your evacuation routes. The road you drove into an earlier in the day, may not be passable to exit from.
Many roads across south central Kentucky are closed due to high waters.
