The remnants of Hurricane Harvey moved northeast from Texas into the lower Ohio Valley on August 31st with rain entering our southern counties during the late afternoon hours. Heavy rain spread across the southeast half of the area through the evening and overnight hours, continuing into the next day. The most concentrated rainfall remained over western Kentucky, where totals ranged from 1 to 4+ inches. The hardest hit area was Todd County Kentucky where localized amounts approached 8 inches. Lighter amounts occurred from southeast Missouri into southern Illinois and southwest Indiana, where some locations didn't receive any measurable rain from Harvey.
