An emergency management agency official for greater Louisville says scattered flooding led to 82 people being evacuated over the weekend.  Metro Safe Spokeswoman Jody Duncan says emergency workers safely removed people from homes and stranded cars late Saturday and early Sunday as waters rose waist-deep in some areas. There were no injuries.

She says nearly 6 inches of rain Saturday triggered the flooding. A storm front sweeping the nation's midsection is being blamed for heavy rains in the Louisville area that swamped underpasses and partly submerged some cars.
