Flash flooding in Nicholasville caught area residents off guard as water rushed onto their streets and towards businesses.
Linda Wallace said, "I was on my way to church and couldn't believe how many streets were flooded."
Water reached the windows of cars parked along 2nd Street.
An ambulance that had been trying to transport medical supplies from a nursing home to an emergency shelter couldn't make it through the the high water.
Businesses like Ramsey's, on old Harrodsburg Road weren't taking any chances.
With a flood warning still in effect, the public is being told to not drive near flooded areas if possible..
