Floods Hit SoKY from Hurricane Harvey's Path

Posted: Updated:
Bowling Green, KY -

Hurricane Harvey has made it's way to South Central Kentucky and it's causing some widespread flooding.

Other areas impacted that we know of so far are U.S. 231 near Hammett Hill, water is flooding the ditches, starting to sweep over the road ways and has some pretty strong, fast moving currents.

Other areas to avoid traveling that are impassable or partially blocked off are Browning Road, Brownslock Road, Canton Avenue, 5000 block of Scottsville Road, Three Springs Road, Canton Avenue, Louisville Road and Elrod Road. High water is also standing near 12th Street and Clay Street in Bowling Green. 

A number of accidents and water rescues have occurred today as well.

Officials say areas here in South Central Kentucky have already seen 4 to 6 inches of rain and the system will bring another 3 to 4 inches as it continues tonight and into early Saturday.

So what does this mean? Well officials urge residents to not travel if they can avoid it. I'm currently standing in about 6 inches of water here on Old Barren River Road. Emergency officials say that is enough to sweep a car off the road way. So again turn around don't drown. Don't try to attempt traveling through any standing water.
