Perry County in southeastern Kentucky...
Johnson County in northeastern Kentucky...
southwestern Knott County in southeastern Kentucky...
southern Lee County in southeastern Kentucky...
northeastern Floyd County in southeastern Kentucky...
Breathitt County in southeastern Kentucky...
northwestern Harlan County in southeastern Kentucky...
Leslie County in southeastern Kentucky...
Owsley County in southeastern Kentucky...

* until 415 PM EST Friday

* at 134 am EST... portions of the South Fork... North Fork... and
Middle Fork of the Kentucky River... the Licking River... and the
levisa and tug Forks of the Big Sandy rivers are still in flood.
Backwater from this is flooding low lying areas and tributary
creeks and streams and has led to Road closures on several roads
near these rivers. The rivers have crested or are nearing crest in
many of these locations and the water should recede out of the
affected areas on Friday.

* Some locations that may experience flooding include...
hazard... Paintsville... Prestonsburg... Jackson... Salyersville...
Manchester... Hindman... Inez... Hyden... Booneville... Mason...
Wheelwright... Pippa Passes... Vicco... Warfield... Allen...
BUckhorn... Bush... Corn Fork Hollow and Cressmont.

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.

Slick roads will continue through tonight and into early Friday
morning due to the recent snowfall... in addition to this there
have been reports of patchy ground fog. Combine this with
subfreezing temperatures expected tonight... any melted snow will
likely refreeze on roads... adding to the danger. The subfreezing
temperatures will also be harmful to people and animals who are
outside.
