Video: Dramatic Flooding, Rescues in LouisvilleHeavy overnight rains required swift evacuations of 82 in Kentucky
As seen in this video, a dramatic nighttime flood evacuation took place in and around Louisville last night -- 82 people were rescued from their homes and cars due to swiftly-rising waters from a drenching rainstorm. Some of the evacuations even required boats to get residents safely to shelters.
Though the worst of the storm is over, and the flooding has abated, rain was still falling in the region early Sunday morning.
The storms that walloped Louisville were a part of a larger cold front that passed through Saturday night. Flash-flood alerts were posted for multiple counties in the Louisville region, though all have now expired.
