It didn’t last 40 days and nights, but two days of seemingly nonstop rainfall was more than enough for much of central Kentucky in May of 2010.
Marion County received between nearly 8 inches of rain in the span of two days.
Flooding, mud slides and water-covered roads all created hazards in several parts of Marion County. At least 20 residences were evacuated, basements and businesses were flooded and roads were closed. Fortunately, no injuries were reported as a result of the flooding.
