Storm brings down trees, floods roads in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A slow-moving severe storm caused some problems around Lexington Thursday night.

A lot of rain fell in a short period of time, flooding some roads around the city. On Clays Mill Road, drivers still went through high water that had covered the road.

The storm also caused some tense moments in the Cardinal Valley neighborhood.

Firefighters say they received a report that four children disappeared around a rain-swollen creek near Village Drive.

They feared the children may have fallen into the creek.

Police and firefighters searched the area, and even called in a water rescue team.

However, the children were found safe at a nearby home a short time later.

At one point, more than 2,500 Kentucky Utilities customers in Kentucky were without power, because of the storm. Many of the outages were in the Nicholasville Road area. Even the Target store there lost power.

Some trees were also blown down by high winds, mainly in the western and southern parts of the city.
