Americans at all income levels have experienced the challenges of rebuilding their lives after a disaster or other emergency. In these stressful times, having access to personal financial, insurance, medical and other records is crucial for starting the recovery process quickly and efficiently.

📌 Gather financial and critical personal, household and medical information.

📌 Consider saving money in an emergency savings account that could be used in any crisis.

📌 Obtain property (homeowners or renters), health and life insurance if you do not have them. Not all insurance policies are the same.

Monday Afternoon Update on Heavy Rain and Potential Flash Flooding

Round One: Thunderstorms and showers will continue to produce locally heavy rainfall and localized flash flooding. These impacts will be localized, and the best chance is generally along and north of I-64. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect this afternoon and tonight for northern Kentucky. (not in the Louisville area of responsibility)

Round Two -Tuesday and Tuesday Night: Widespread rain from the remnant low of Ida moves in from the south and pushes north during the morning hours. Banded heavy rain could cause localized flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect Tuesday into Tuesday night for most of the Commonwealth, including nearly all of central Kentucky. Moderate to high confidence in widespread rain, less confidence in where we can get a few hours of steady but hard tropical rain to cause flash flooding.

Highlights:

🌧 Overall rainfall amounts remain unchanged, generally 2 to 4 inches total

🌧 Most significant rain amounts along and east of a line from Bowling Green to Lexington.

🌧 Locally heavy amounts with up to 2 inches per hour.

🌧 Heavy rain ends in western/central KY by early morning Wednesday

🌧 Less of a threat for river flooding. This will mostly be a short-fuse event affecting the flashy small streams.
