ROCKCASTLE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– The cleanup from another round of storms continued in parts of the Bluegrass. A mudslide in Rockcastle County didn’t shut down a road, but it created another problem for neighbors.

After another rainy weekend, a hill gave way, knocking out water for most of Livington at one point.

After a quick search, the city identified the water main break near Roundstone Creek where the bank washed out on Sunday, taking down tall trees and branches with it.

The line was shut off, which restored running water to most of Livingston, but around sixty customers have to wait until the new pipes are installed.

“Trying to just fix it in areas in hopes that it lasts long enough that we don’t have to do it again, so often. But with all the rain that we’ve been having, it’s a ticking time bomb,” said Livingston Mayor Jason Medley.
