...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM EST THIS EVENING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of northeast Kentucky, south central Kentucky, and
  southeast Kentucky, including the following areas, in
  northeast Kentucky, Martin. In south central Kentucky, Laurel,
  McCreary, and Whitley. In southeast Kentucky, Bell, Clay,
  Floyd, Harlan, Knott, Knox, Leslie, Letcher, Perry, and Pike.

* Until 10 PM EST this evening

* Another round of moderate to heavy rainfall will move through
  southeast Kentucky today. With the ground already very saturated
  from previous rainfall, the additional rainfall could lead to
  flooding of low lying areas. Rainfall is expected to range from
  three quarters of an inch to an inch and a half, with locally
  higher amounts possible along the Virginia border.

* Ponding of water on roadways as well as rock and mudslides are
  expected, especially in areas of steep terrain. Flooding is
  possible along area creeks, streams, and in low lying areas.
  Significant rises are expected in the Kentucky and Cumberland
  River basins.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
