Flooding closes roads in Louisville metro area

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Heavy rains in the Louisville metro area have led to many barricaded roads in different parts of the city.

Metrosafe says at least 82 people had to be evacuated from their homes overnight and into the morning.

The worst of the flooding is concentrated in the Beargrass Creek area, with evacuations from Rockcliff Court and Peabody Lane in Bashford Manor, the Whispering Hills Boulevard area near Highview and the Guardian Court area in Newburg.

The American Red Cross, TARC and Jefferson County Public Schools are all working together to provide transportation and shelter for the families evacuated from their homes.

A Metrosafe spokesperson says people that have been evacuated are being taken to Atherton High School.

Metrosafe reminds drivers not to venture into flood waters or try to get past barricades.
