LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A group of Lexington police, firefighters and paramedics will head to a flood-stricken area of eastern Kentucky to assist first-responders there.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/1GBZ1HY ) reports the group of Lexington emergency workers will leave Thursday for Johnson County and stay through Sunday.

The group will help clean up and repair property belonging to Johnson County police, firefighters and others with emergency medical services. Some of them haven’t had time to meet their personal needs as they worked to help others in the flood that killed four people.

Flash flooding early last week devastated a rural stretch of Johnson County, about 120 miles east of Lexington. Four people were killed and dozens of homes were destroyed along a stretch of more than eight rugged miles from Flat Gap to Staffordsville.
