Wet roads could cause tricky commute

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) -The non-stop rainfall overnight could cause problems for drivers during their morning commute.

The rainfall left quite a bit of standing water on the roads. According to AAA, wet pavement contributes to nearly 1.2 million traffic crashes each year.

Lexington Police tell ABC 36 there have been no weather-related crashes, but with the increase in traffic for the Wednesday morning commute that could change.

If you are out driving this morning it is recommended that you drive with extra caution and give yourself plenty of stopping room.

The gusty winds that started yesterday are also sticking around for the morning.The wind downed tree on Tates Creek road Wednesday morning.

Police say the wind is also to blame for several alarm calls they had to respond to overnight. Officials say it rattled business doors and even blew a few open.

ABC 36 also checked in with local utility companies to see if this storm caused any widespread power outages, but they are only reporting a few scattered outages.
