MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Emergency management officials took to social media Wednesday to warn people in Montgomery County about a road that was impassible due to high water.

Aarons Run Road in Mount Sterling was covered with water after rain fell throughout the afternoon.

"It was [raining] hard, very hard," said Sonny Spontil, who lives in the area. "If you lived here a long time, you know when you can and when you cannot go through it."

Spontil said people in the area are used to flooding. The water comes off the road and backs up in his backyard from time to time.

"We have two creeks down here that come together. That's the reason it backs up through here," he said.

The good news is the water receded quite a bit throughout the day.

Spontil said while the high water is an inconvenience, there is nowhere else he would rather live.

"[It] doesn't bother me! I'm used to it," he said.
