In Letcher County, a frightening situation, a bridge partially collapsed today leaving people living on the other side stranded.
It happened early this morning on Highway 7 at Perkins Branch near Letcher Elementary School.
Officials say the bridge was weakened by recent flooding and serves around 30 homes.
The county is working to put in a walkway on the other side of the creek so people can cross, but it could take a day or two to finish.
Those living in the area tell local media they are worried about elderly neighbors if there is an emergency.
