Tuesday Feb.8th Rain most of the day and into the late evening had creeks rising and low-lying areas around Lawrence County flooded for the second time in just over a week.

Roads on the 700’s along farm fields were covered with Tuesday’s rains making them impassable. Photos taken of Lawrence County Roads 716 and 741 show the flooding around 6pm Tuesday. The photos were taken by Lawrence County Deputies patroling out in the county.

Swollen streams and flooded fields remained Wednesday morning but hopefully drier weather will soon prevail.
