ROWAN COUNTY (LEX 18) — Heavy rain brought some flooding to areas of Rowan County.

Video sent to LEX 18 by a viewer last night showed floodwaters covering Old Flemingsburg Road in Morehead.

A worker at Saint Claire Regional Medical Center also sent the station photographs of standing water in the hospital's parking lot. Workers say some of the water made it inside the building.

Morehead police said water also got into their headquarters, adding that it was cleaned up quickly.
