An abandoned mine blowout at Turner's Creek near Evarts has caused flood damage.

Calls arrived to the Harlan County Emergency Management and they confirmed a mine had blown out and flooding the bridge at Turner's Creek and going onto KY 215.

Harlan County Road Department worked to clear the roadway, and no injuries were reported due to the blow out.

The road should be in better shape possibly by the middle of the week
