Kenton County residents deal with heavy rain, flooding

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

In parts of Kenton County, the water rushed in high and fast Tuesday morning. It covered baseball fields, cut off roads, and left people stranded from flash flooding. Some people even had to be rescued by the fire department.

Keith Daniel's church, Eggleston United Methodist, took on a pretty large amount of water. in the basemen, he estimated three feet of water covered the meeting rooms.

 "I was concerned about who might be trapped or harmed or that. It's just a building. I know a lot of people say that, but our ministry understands, this is just a building," Daniel said.

For others, the flood wasn't as easy to dismiss.

 "I grabbed what I could," said Tarin Hensley, who watched the water swell up to her house and fill up the basement.

"It's just a little nerve racking, knowing what's going under water, what we could not get. A lot of thinks are replaceable and some aren't, but most of the replaceable stuff we got up," said Hensley.

As the waters start to recede, what's left for most people here, is major cleanup.
