    Yes, there have been several threads on it here this week.

    It's going to be a huge job for them to move everything to new buildings. I hope they didn't produce maps to hand out. I feel really bad for all the people affected by this; it could become a real mess.

    The hotels aren't cancelling reservations due to weather! You show up or not you still have to pay for the room. Now that's lousy. I still plan on driving there Thursday morning. So far none of the bloggers who are there have posted anything about being afraid of flooding as of yet. I think after Wed. the threat will be much lower.

    I'm just off the Ohio River over a 100 miles east of Paducah. Last night's weather up here said we're in for a huge flood----------worst in years. We've had over 10" in 'April, 7" since Friday. More coming tonight and then more WEdnescay and Thursday.

    It is really bad. My son is a student at Murray State University and they closed the entire university today because of wind damage and no electricity. Our area is SO flooded and I only have electricity about half the time. I am just thankful that thus far no one has been injured. They have had to completely evacuate the neighborhood down the road from me (Sulphur, KY) because if the damn at the lake breaks the little community will be TOTALLY under water. So strange...that is where we had my Dad's little trailer before he passed away.
