Camper Swept Away by Kentucky River Current Amid Continued Flooding

Communities in eastern Kentucky were still inundated with water on Tuesday, March 2, after a weekend of heavy rain caused the Kentucky River to burst its banks.

Winchester resident Wayne Keeton shared footage from Clays Ferry Bridge in Lexington, where a submerged camper was swept away by the current of the Kentucky River.

Police said the Lexington Fire Department had “been busy” Monday with multiple water rescues, and urged drivers not to attempt to cross flooded roadways. Credit: Wayne Keeton via Storyful
