Abstract

The flood of February 1989 in Kentucky was the result of two storms that caused as much as 13.37 inches of rain at one site during the period of February 13-22. The heaviest rainfall was in western Kentucky where rainfall amounts of 10 to 13 inches were common. Eastern Kentucky received smaller amounts, but several inches were recorded at most precipitation measurement sites. Flooding from the rainfall resulted in the 100-year flood frequency being exceeded at three gaging stations. (USGS)
