Flooded creeks and streams cause problems around central Kentucky

BOYLE COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The steady, heavy rain that fell across Kentucky Thursday turned some quiet creeks and streams into raging rivers.

An example of that was in Boyle County.

According to the Boyle County Sheriff's Office, an SUV became stuck in a swollen creek along Forkland Road, near the Casey County line.

Deputies say everyone inside the SUV got out safely.

Some high water problems were also reported in Mercer County.

At one point Thursday night, U.S. 68, near the Jessamine County line, was covered in water.

The water began to recede along U.S. 68 later in the night.
