Waters are climbing and already are overflowing roads and homes along the banks of the Ohio River at West Point.
Residents are moving their belongings to higher ground and other locations to prevent water damage.
West Point Elementary School will be closed Monday.
Officials say the water will continue climbing until Tuesday, even if no more rain falls. And that's not happening, according to forecasters.
The current line of rain and storms is stalling out over the area. Another 1 to 2 inches could fall before dawn, forecasters predict.
