Confluence Area Flooding

For the past two years, officials in Leslie County have had to deal with flooding that trapped people who live in the Confluence area. The Confluence was trapped by high waters in February 2019.As rain continues to fall and more is expected to come this week, emergency officials are asking those who live in the community to prepare.”We don’t know exactly how high the water is going to go. We don’t expect it to get as high as it did last year but it’s definitely going to close them off,” said Tony Hacker, the Leslie County emergency management director.Right now water blocks the entrance to Trace Branch. While most of Confluence is currently accessible, it is a possible sign of what may come.
