Emergency responders in Franklin County prepared early for the storms moving through central Kentucky Thursday night.

There was a steady drizzle of rain in Frankfort this evening, but around 10 p.m. that switched to a harder rain with thunder and lightning. High winds also picked up late tonight.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office said they were prepared for any storm related calls, but as of 10:30 p.m. had not received one.

During a ride along with a deputy, he pointed out a road that was starting to collect some water, but it wasn't bad enough to impact traffic.

The Kentucky Emergency Management Center was fully staffed and monitoring the storm. They will meet Friday morning too if they need to go over county storm damage.
