Episode Narrative Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms moved east along a stationary front near the Ohio River on June 4th. Some of these storms moved into northern Fleming County in Kentucky. These storms produced damaging winds, resulting in downed trees and tree limbs. Hail the size of quarters was also reported. In addition to the large hail and damaging winds, flash flooding also occurred. The ground was already saturated from the previous day's rainfall, with another 1 to 2 inches falling on the 3rd. Several roads had at least a half a foot of water flowing over them for a time.
Event Narrative Six inches of water was flowing over Poplar Grove Road.
