Episode Narrative Around the Hopkinsville area, temperatures rose above freezing for several hours. Temperatures of 32 to 33 degrees during most of the ice storm were warm enough that the excessive rainfall quickly ran off into the Little River basin.
Event Narrative The Little River near the city of Hopkinsville flooded out of its banks. The Trail of Tears Park along with a campground experienced flooding. The river overflowed onto Little River Church Road. Residents of flood-prone areas along the river were urged to evacuate. Between 3 and 4 inches of rain fell within 36 hours of the flooding.
