A week ago, LaRue Countians had to deal with the aftermath of a severe windstorm.
This week, residents will try to dry out their homes and furnishings after heavy rains caused widespread flooding.
Hard-hit areas include Youngers Creek, Athertonville, Salem Lake and Barren Run.
About 8 inches of rain fell on the area in a 24-hour period beginning Saturday morning to late Sunday afternoon, according to Kentucky Mesonet. Although LaRue County does not have a Mesonet weather research station, surrounding counties reported 7 to 10 inches of rain.
