Another blast of winter hit Owen County March 4-5, dumping nearly a foot of snow in some areas.
Following snow, rain and more snow, the Kentucky River was on the rise last week as the snow began to melt.
As of press time Tuesday, Owen County was under a flood watch, which is expected to expire at 2 p.m. today.
Owen County Emergency Management Director David Lilly said Tuesday’s rain was causing small streams to rise.
Lilly said the river was falling, but water still covered portions of Old Landing Road Tuesday.
