The highly anticipated solar eclipse is 12 days away, and Hopkinsville will be crawling with people.

So, what about surrounding towns, like Morton's Gap and Madisonville?

They're anticipating thousands of vehicles traveling through and staying in the Madisonville area. 

They're making sure they're prepared for that on Monday and even the weekend before.
