Man Dies After Bridge Fall in Flash Flood

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say a man who was
checking on a relative's home during flash flooding was killed when
he fell from a bridge.

Police said in a press release that Craig Morris of Carrie had
stopped on a highway bridge Saturday in Zebulon in eastern
Kentucky. He was looking out over the area when he fell to his
death.

Emergency officials say numerous homes were damaged, some were
washed away, and roads and bridges were damaged during the flash
flooding Saturday.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that homes throughout the
central part of the county were without tap water and would be on a
boil-water advisory when it comes back on. The storms also knocked
out power to hundreds of customers.
