Outpouring of support in Johnson County after flash floods

JOHNSON COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – An outpouring of support is arriving in Johnson County after flash floods destroyed the community of Flatgap on Monday.

The Johnson Central High School cafeteria was turned into a makeshift store, acting as the main distribution point of supplies for people affected by the floods.

“It started off with individual kids taking money out of their pocket from their summer jobs, going to Walmart buying a roll of paper towels and that’s the beginning,” Johnson Central Principal Russell Hasley says. 

On Wednesday afternoon, donations were pouring in by the car-load and truck-load. Volunteers lined the front drive of the high school to help bring things inside. 

Hasley says the community is still in need of donations and supplies. For ways you can help, click here.
