Parts Of Jessamine County Dealing With Flooding

JESSAMINE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – People in parts of Jessamine County were dealing with flooding on Sunday evening.

The Jessamine County emergency management director says there are parts of the county that have seen up to 8 inches of rain within the past two days.

He says there are also plenty of roads that are completely under water, and drivers need to be especially cautious.

Some roads are closed while others have signs warning of high water.

“Yeah we’ve turned around a couple places, I’ve seen some trucks go through but in our little car I wouldn’t even chance it so we stop and turn around,” said Jessamine County resident AJ Halcomb.

The EMA director didn’t have an estimate of when the water might recede, so he says drivers should be careful on the roads overnight and into Monday morning.

A playground that was underwater also caught a lot of people’s attention.
