LOUISVILLE, Kentucky - A potent storm front that rumbled across the nation's midsection on Sunday is blamed for dumping up to 6 inches of rain in Kentucky, causing flooding in the Louisville area.
Authorities say dozens of people had to be evacuated from low-lying areas around Louisville and Jefferson County overnight, some by rescue personnel using boats.
Emergency management officials say they helped more than 80 people escape water that was waist-deep in spots. Some evacuees took shelter in a high school and others in a church.
There are no reports of injuries.
