Authorities report no injuries, flooded streets and occasional tree limbs down from two rounds of severe storms that passed through Kentuckiana Wednesday afternoon and evening.
The National Weather Service issued at least three tornado warnings based on radar-indicated tornadoes. There was no initial word if any tornadoes touched down.
WDRB's Marc Weinberg reports that MSD rain gauges show 2.7 inches of rain fell in downtown Louisville during the Wednesday afternoon thunderstorms. That water brought street flooding in numerous locations in Louisville and Jeffersonville. Other parts of the area saw three inches of rain or more.
Firefighters responded to several water rescue calls between 5 and 6 p.m. No injuries were reported. However, drivers appeared not to be heeding a long-time warning to drive away from high water.
Some people abandoned their cars, doing everything they could, even climbing out of windows, to get out before they washed away.
LaDonna Cecil found herself stranded on Lextington Road in St. Matthews.
"I'm driving through that water and I thought oh my Lord, it's getting deeper and deeper what am I doing here?'" Cecil told WDRB.
Several roads in Cherokee Park were flooded and some lanes were blocked by fallen trees.
