Central Kentucky experiences flooding after rain
CENTRAL KENTUCKY. (WTVQ) – Emergency managers in several Kentucky counties have reported flood conditions from heavy rain Friday into Saturday.
The EMA had to rescue a a stranded driver on Goshen road in Lincoln County.
Several roads were closed because of high water covering them, but the main roads are drive-able.
Rockcastle County is seeing similar conditions; Mount Vernon had many water covered roads.
Also because of the high water, the Valley View ferry is closed.
The ferry connects Madison, Jessamine, and Fayette counties.
The Lexington Traffic Management Center says, in addition to the high water, there is also a lot of debris in the river.
There’s no set time yet for when the ferry will run again.
We want to remind you of the old phrase, “turn around, don’t drown”, to be safe during times of flooding.
