A Lancaster man has nothing left after he said the Kentucky River swept away his home and his two vehicles, along with his two cats that were inside the trailer.

He said he watched as all of his belongings were consumed by the rushing water at around 6 Wednesday morning.

Now, the man says he doesn't even have any shoes to wear.

Red Cross and emergency management were contacted about the man's loss and are currently assisting him.
