The places that declared emergencies were Harlan, Bell, Knox, Letcher and Floyd counties and the city of Pineville, according to Monica LFrench, spokeswoman for Kentucky Emergency Management. In Harlan County, 30 to 50 people spent Saturday night in shelters, either because their homes were flooded or because roads to their homes were blocked by high water, said Judge-Executive Dan Mosley. Mosley said 100 or more homes were evacuatedIn addition, emergency workers had to do at least half a dozen rescues to help people out of vehicles they had driven into flood-covered roads, Mosley said. jQuery(document).ready(function () { mi.renderNewsletterIframe.init({ container: '#newsletter-signUpWidget', url: 'http://x.email.kentucky.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=186,http://x.email.kentucky.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=190,http://x.email.kentucky.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=196' }); }); Never miss a local story.

The hardest-hit areas included Tremont, Dayhoit and Blair, but flooding was widespread, he said. “It was pretty extensive,” Mosley said. Flooding that may have been related to a blowout of an old underground coal mine damaged KY 160 in Lynch, said David McGill, emergency manager for Harlan County.
