Roads Washed Out Across Eastern Kentucky Due to Flooding

Multiple roads throughout eastern Kentucky are either closed or are down to one lane thanks to flooded out roads, landslides, and sinkholes.

In Perry County, what appeared to just be normal cracks in roadways spread and caused parts of a number of roads to wash away altogether.

Among those roads that are currently closed -and will be until further notice- is Kentucky 267 in Perry County near Krypton.

Due to the flooding, Senator Rand Paul sent a letter to Donald Trump on Thursday urging him to consider any request for aid from Gov. Matt Bevin due to recent flooding.

The flooding and its subsequent damage led Bevin to declare a state of emergency earlier this week. That state of emergency allowed state crews to mobilize in recovery and response efforts.
