* Flood Warning for urban areas and small streams in...
Clay County in southeastern Kentucky...
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...

* at 714 am EST... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain moving across
parts of the warning area. As much of three quarters of an inch to
one inch of rain has already fallen. Up to another inch could fall
by mid afternoon. Rainfall rates of one quarter to a half of an
inch per hour on the already saturated ground will likely
overwhelm ditches and culverts. Small streams and creeks should
also flood with this additional rainfall.

* Some locations that will 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...

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.
