Eastern Kentucky Officials Check Dam After Recent Earthquake

Officials in Eastern Kentucky are checking a dam to see if the recent 4.3 earthquake enlarged the flow of a small stream at the bottom of the structure.

An engineer says the Elkhorn Lake Dam's stream is ten times larger than it was five years ago.

Officials say the growth of the stream is a concern and officials will decide what needs to be done after tests are complete.

The November 10th earthquake was the fourth largest in Kentucky history.
