Record flooding in Paintsville, 1984

Posted on June 27, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

Steve Evans and Greg Hence paddled past the Superamerica store where Evans is the manager in Paintsville May 8, 1984. Rivers and streams swollen by torrential rains left their banks across much of Kentucky on May 7, leaving at least three people dead and one missing. Large numbers were left homeless in the state’s worst flood in at least six years. Photo by David Cooper
