Many in Frankfort keeping an eye on flooded Kentucky River

The aftermath of the flooding that's swept through much of Kentucky continues Tuesday.

Many people are beginning to clean up, as others continue to watch the water rise.

In Frankfort, people have been out all day keeping an eye on the flooded Kentucky River.

For some, dealing with flooding is a part of life.

"I've seen them all because I've lived over here so long," Frankfort resident Russell Harrod said. "We've had to move almost every time."

But for others in Frankfort, this is all new.

"This is our first time with it," Frankfort resident Kerensa Carpenter said. "So we were kind of at our wits end. But we're working through it at the same time."

Carpenter has lived in a neighborhood near the Kentucky River for two years. As she watches the water creeping up, she says she's also looking out for the community.

Despite the flooding, many who live near the river says they would not choose to live in any other place.

Most people we talked to said they are pretty confident the waters won't rise any more.

The river was expected to crest Tuesday morning.
