Crews from each county in the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 3 area are responding to their respectful areas following a severe storm weather system. Every county in the District 3 area is reporting trees down, debris in the roadway as well as flooded roads. Logan County and Todd County were the hardest hit by the storm system that hit early Sunday morning.

Logan and Todd County crews are reporting widespread damage with downed power lines, downed trees, flooded roads and other roadway debris. Crews are working as fast and as safe as they can assisting other first responders and utility companies. Another round of severe storms will be moving through the area this afternoon with more on the way tonight.

Logan and Todd County Emergency Management is advising residents to avoid traveling at this time as emergency crews continue to work. Edmonson County, Metcalfe County and Warren County are also reporting power outages and trees down. Damage to traffic signals are also being reported in some areas. Our traffic signal techs have been deployed. 

With more rain on the way flooded roads are a major concern along with ponding water on roadways. Motorists should never attempt to drive through possible high water or over downed power lines. As crews are able to report flooded roads an updated list will be sent out as the information becomes available. Following the District 3 social media accounts with the links at the bottom of this email is a great way to get the latest information.
