Kentucky underwater, Beshear declares state of emergency.

Well it's been a couple of crazy days of weather, with 2 confirmed tornados touching down in Lexington on Friday and massive amounts of rain.  Gov. Beshear has declared a state of emergency.

A guy I know shot this on Friday, this is coming north on Tate's Creek.

Lexington is now at record levels of rainfall according to the The National Weather Service:

"Lexington has seen a record amount of rainfall for April, the National Weather Service said Sunday.
The rainiest April on record in Lexington before this year was in 1970, with 9.3 inches. April 2011 has had 10.15 inches, with more coming in the next few days. The rainiest month on record was January 1950, with 16.65 inches, according to the National Weather Service in Louisville."
