Cleanup continues in Clay City after flooding



POWELL COUNTY, Ky. (WDKY) – Clay City in Powell County is another area hit hard by the flooding.

On Main Street, it’s all hands on deck for clean-up efforts.

Thursday, clean-up at the Red River Museum continues, as it does for countless homes and businesses in the area.

Lisa Johnson with the Clay City Fire Department says when the flooding started, 35 to 40 people went to the museum to save historic items.

But, to Lisa, it’s about seeing the community come together to help each other out.

“It’s nice to sit back and know in this day and time there still is human beings going out here, there’s still friendship, there’s still people who care,” Johnson said.

Looking ahead, Johnson says the clean-up efforts will continue for at least the next 10 days.

If anyone needs help or is living in dangerous conditions, Johnson says they can call the mayor’s office.
