Flooding swamps Berea

Slow moving storms made their way across areas in Central Kentucky Tuesday afternoon, leaving some roads flooded.

A big area of concern is in Berea, in Madison County.

That's where between four and six inches fell in about three to four hours.

27 NEWSFIRST is getting reports of several businesses that are flooded.

A family got trapped inside a mini van while leaving a dentist appointment.

They tell us they were coming back home and didn't see how high the waters were.

At one point, their van had water up to its windows.

The Madison County EMA reports several roads in the Berea are hazardous because of high water. They include Highway 21 at Indian Fort Theatre, Old U.S. 25, parts of Walnut Meadow Road, Ellipse Street, and the area around exit 77 of Interstate 75. They're asking anyone who doesn't need to be on the roads in Berea stay off them.

They're also asking people in Madison County refrain from calling 911 unless it's a life-threatening situation.
