Kentucky’s Second Largest Lake Is Flooded Like Never Before And You Need To See It

Unfortunately this time of year, Kentucky often experiences flooding of some kind, all over the state. This winter, our state has been hit especially hard with record rainfalls, which have now lead to record flooding. One place that has been majorly impacted by all of this water is Kentucky’s second largest lake, Lake Cumberland. This lake in Kentucky is known for its recreational fun but it is now flooded like never before and the photos and video are unbelievable.
