52 This is the flood of record. About 80 percent of the area of Falmouth is under water, as high as 10 feet in some portions of the town. Much of Route 27 and State Route 22 are under several feet of water. Butler, Kentucky also incurs major flooding, with several other smaller low-lying towns along the river flooded as well. Flooding along the Licking River also affects much of Campbell and Kenton Counties near the river.
50 Much of Falmouth is covered by three to eight feet of water from the Licking River. Hardest hit areas are the low-lying roads closest to the river. Major inundation of over 70 percent of Falmouth occurs. Many homes along Shelby and Riggs Streets are completely submerged, with both Route 27 and Route 22 covered by high water.
48.5 This stage is approximately the FEMA 1 percent flood. Much of Falmouth is flooded. Shelby and Riggs Streets are the most heavily impacted with three to five feet of water into homes and businesses. The downtown area also incurs flooding.
