Terrible Flooding in Johnson County

photo by WKYT

Johnson County is a place that has been great over the years to KSR, from being one of the first affiliates in the state to pick up the radio show to hosting the first ever KSR Tour stop four years ago. Thus it is with particular sadness that the pictures of the tremendous flooding devastation in and around Johnson County strike home today. After the seeming never-ending stream of rain that has engulfed the state over the last few weeks, a great deal of the Commonwealth was hit with flooding late yesterday, causing the Governor to issue an Emergency Disaster Declaration earlier today. No place was hit as hard as Johnson County, where at least one person is dead and ten missing following the mass destruction. Over 150 homes were destroyed and another 500 significantly damaged, mostly in the rural parts of the county. The pictures below from WKYT are just a small example of the difficulties facing the area and our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by this tremendous natural disaster.

    What can you say? So horrible. I know that Flat Gap/Red Bush area well. Used to visit there as a kid a lot. My prayers are with those folks.

    After some of the flash flooding we got in Paducah last week I understand some of what’s going on. It wasn’t that bad, but still really devastating.

    My prayers go out to those families.
