State of emergency declared across Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ)- Governor Matt Bevin has declared a state of emergency across Kentucky this weekend.

He says it’s in response to all the rain we’re getting.

Again, the ground is already so saturated that there’s nowhere for the water to go so we’re seeing widespread flooding that’s causing problems on roads.

In addition to the state of emergency, search and rescue teams are standing by to help rescue people from high water.

FEMA is already out assessing damage in Eastern Kentucky from the flooding two weekends ago and officials say they’re prepared to stay here to check out any other damage that could happen.
