Reports of flash flooding in Caldwell, Lyon Counties

KENTUCKY (KFVS) -

The public information officer with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is reporting flash flooding that is pushing water over the roads in Caldwell County.

According to Keith Todd with KYTC, portions of Lyon County, near the area, are under a flash flood warning until 2:30 p.m.

KYTC crews in Caldwell County report water over KY 91 in several places between Fredonia and Princeton. This is along KY 91 between the 17 and 21 mile marker. At one location water is reported to be about a foot deep with strong current.

Todd said water is likely to go down in some areas fairly quickly. However, brush and trees swept along by the floodwaters have clogged a culvert near the Crider community. KYTC personnel are en route with equipment to try to clear storm debris.

Drivers are asked to use caution anytime they encounter water over the road. Turn around, don't drown.
