BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet was hard at work overnight keeping up with flash flooding. They had to close several roads this morning in surrounding counties.

The transportation cabinet advises if the roads are wet to drive with caution and to remember to turn around don’t drown if there is a significant amount of standing water on a road.

“First of all, if people notice water over a roadway and there’s even a question of if they can get by it or not, they shouldn’t try it. They need to turn around and go a different way. It’s not worth it. We do our best to keep everybody updated on what roads are flooded and what are what’s not flooded,” said Wes Watt, KYTC District 3.

The transportation cabinet will keep an updated list of closed roads on their social media pages.
