Ironwood Golf Course at Carver Downs has been shut down for the summer due to flooding
Carver County, Kentucky, is bracing for some more heavy rains this weekend.
The National Weather Service in Louisville says the heavy rain will likely fall over the weekend, and that Carver could be hit with up to 3 inches of rain.
The weather service warns of possible flash flooding along the rivers of Kentucky, Ohio and Illinois, and heavy winds along the Ohio River and along the Kentucky-Kentucky border.
“It is going to be a little bit of a nightmare, but I think we’re in a good position right now,” said Mike Suggs, spokesman for the National Weather Center.
Suggs said the storm could be a bigger problem this weekend than the floods of October, when nearly half of the county was without power.
The county has not had any flooding in the past year.
Alfred Sugg, an electrician and community activist, said he’s been trying to keep the lights on, and he’s not worried about the rain.
But he’s worried about flooding in Carver.
“I think it will be worse than what it was in October, but it’s still not bad,” he said.
