The mother of a Kentucky congressman has been rescued from a rain-swollen creek following a vehicle crash in Louisville.

U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth says his mother, Edna Yarmuth, suffered minor injuries from the Tuesday morning accident that left her vehicle partly submerged in Goose Creek.

Louisville was swamped by about 3 1/2 inches of rain as a strong thunderstorm rumbled through the area Tuesday morning.
Yarmuth said in a statement that his mother was wearing her seat belt, and he thanked rescue workers for their "exceptional" efforts.

Yarmuth is a Democrat who serves a Louisville-area district. Elsewhere in the city, flash flooding swamped the University of
Louisville's main campus and produced lightning that sparked an apartment complex fire on the edge of campus. There were no injuries from the blaze.
