Darren Doyle, story:
The rain poured down not only on all of Edmonson County but also all of Kentucky Sunday and Sunday evening, which caused flooding all over the WABBLES area (Warren, Allen, Barren, Butler, Logan, Edmonson, and Simpson).
A portion of Nolin Dam Road (KY HWY 728) was closed for nearly two hours this evening due to a mudslide that pushed mud, rocks, and debris into the pathway of traffic.
KY Transportation Cabinet personnel worked to clear the roadway, which was reopened around 10PM.
Emergency personnel worked around the county removing downed trees and other debris as a result of rain and storms throughout the day.
Some parts of Edmonson County reportedly received over 5 inches of rain on Sunday alone. We received multiple reports of residents being temporarily stranded at their homes due to driveways being washed out or flooded.
Edmonson County Schools cancelled classes for Monday due to some flooded roadways and other areas throughout the county.
