It's Coming!

The rain event of the last few weeks has set up a scenario that has lead to the worst flood in west Kentucky and the lower Ohio river basin since 1937; and in some cases worse. The object of this blog is to share info, photos and story's about the flood and it's effect on our community. Please share with me whatever you think will help accomplish this goal, and I will publish what I can.

Last night this home only had water up to the second step or so. It came up almost a foot last night.


Getting Worse

Water is lapping at the edges of highway 60 in several spots between Smithland and Burna. I would estimate by late Sunday night it will cross the road.
