The National Weather Service in Jackson KY has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
southern Laurel County in south central Kentucky...
southeastern Clay County in southeastern Kentucky...
Wayne County in south central Kentucky...
southern Pulaski County in south central Kentucky...
Knox County in southeastern Kentucky...
central McCreary County in south central Kentucky...
northern Whitley County in south central Kentucky...
northeastern Bell County in southeastern Kentucky...

* until 1045 PM EDT

* at 742 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated showers and scattered
thunderstorms moving in from the west. The storms will move
repeatedly across the same locations... many of which have already
received heavy rainfall in the past 24 hours. Excess runoff will
cause minor flooding of creeks and streams... roads... and roadside
culverts... especially in low lying and poor drainage areas.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Monticello... Williamsburg... Barbourville... Pineville... Whitley
City... Corbin... Burnside... Stony Fork Junction... and Emmanuel.

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.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
