People in Lexington dealt with icy roads, rising waters and power outages Tuesday night.

While traffic was unusually light along Man O' War Boulevard, parts of the road had standing water.

Many storm drains are frozen over from the latest winter storm.

And flooding wasn't the only problem.

New Circle Road was reportedly covered in ice.

The road conditions were also a concern as Solid Blue fans leave Rupp Arena after the game.

Meanwhile KU reported around 9:00 p.m. that about 1,600 customers were without power in the Richmond Road/ Squires area.
