Driving into flood waters is one of the most dangerous things one can do behind the wheel.  Never drive through flooded roadways, especially if the water is moving rapidly, and never drive around the barriers warning you that the road is flooded.

Motorists should also use caution as tree limbs, gravel and other debris is littering the roadway from all of the heavy rains.

Dial 511 or log on to 511.ky.gov for the latest in traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  Do not call state police posts or other law enforcement agencies for road condition information unless it is an emergency.
