LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Those traveling near Cherokee Park Thursday morning will notice a few traffic detours after Wednesday’s downpours.

If you’re traveling near the curve at Beargrass and Barrett Hill Road, you’ll notice you will not be able to go further.

High waters are causing a problem.

After the storms, 200 customers are still without power in Metro Louisville and Southern Indiana.

Cars were blocked by high water while roads turned into obstacle courses in Cherokee Park.

Seventh Street was closed down after a car stalled crossing through pooling water.

The worst flooding may have occurred on the scenic loop where some say it could be the worst in recent history.

Other areas affected by the flooding included U of L’s campus where a car was covered and parts of St. Matthews with roads under water.
