Managers at the restaurant Hall’s on the River in Winchester are watching the water level in the Kentucky River closely. Their store, which sets right next to the river, is known for being flooded in very heavy rains.

“We're having a lot of people calling us to see if we're actually under water,” manager Adam McCraith said. “But far from it. We're still open for business.”

McCraith explained the difference with this rain is the water in the river can flow downstream because they haven’t been hit with as much rain.

“It can rain on us all day and all night, but if the water has a place to go, we're fine,” McCraith said.

He is concerned about renovations they’re doing to the restaurant’s basement – fixing the damage from the last time they were flooded in 2010.

“There's some concern that the work we've been doing for the past month might be undone and we'll have to start over,” he said.

Halls isn’t the only business hoping to catch a break from the rain soon. Sky-Vue Twin Drive-In in Winchester has taken a hit in this weather.

“With all the rain it's just kind destroyed us. We're not really busy,” manager Lucas Peck said.

Last night, Peck canceled the movie because they didn’t have 15 vehicles, the minimum to run the movies, in the lot.

“The weekend before it got rainy we were doing 12 hundred people. So now we're doing like 30, maybe 50,” Peck said.
