They’re warning drivers about ponding on the road. The water could last into tomorrow and maybe deeper than it looks. Many roads are already closed.

Wes Watt, public information officer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, says this flooding is affecting everyone in the area.

”We’ve got several roads currently blocked. Todd county seems to be experiencing quite a bit of flooding, maybe a little bit more so than some of our other counties. But every county has been impacted greatly,” Wes says.
