List of roads Kentucky closed because of water
If you are traveling, be advised of a number of road closures. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has released a list of roads closed because of water in and around the Local 6 area.
KYTC spokesman Keith Todd notes more rain is on the way and that a flash flood watch is in effect for our area. "Remember to Turn Around, Don’t Drown. As little as 6 inches of moving water can push a vehicle off the roadway or knock you off your feet if you have to get out," Todd said in a news release Monday. "Drowning is the number one cause of weather-related deaths. Let’s all be careful out there."
The National Weather Service released a video earlier this year explaining why it’s important not to drive through roads covered by floodwater. To watch that video, click here.
