Ohio River continues to creep toward Rabbit Hash General Store

RABBIT HASH, KY (FOX19) - Kentucky's governor declared a state of emergency Friday evening, as rain and flooding continue to impact the commonwealth.

In one neighborhood near Verona, water has overtaken the only roadway in or out.

According to our partners at the Cincinnati Enquirer, volunteers and neighbors started packing up parts of the Rabbit Hash General Store this week, as a precaution before flood waters reach the store. Water was still a few feet from the bottom of the General Store Friday, but the performance stage in the town was already underwater.

The Ohio River could reach 59 feet in Cincinnati by Tuesday, the highest level since 1997. Flooding has spurred Tri-State road closures and several government entities to declare a state of emergency.
