According to Keith Todd with KYTC, water is over KY 94 in several places west of Murray in Calloway County beteween Butterworth Road and Lynn Grove.
Due to heavy rainfall and water over roadways in several locations around the county, drivers are advised to avoid unnecessary travel until after daylight Thursday.
According to Graves County Emergency Management director Jammey Lock, heavy rain caused a creek to back up in the Mayfield downtown area.
Water started making its way into homes around 11 p.m. and crews began evacuating people and closing off the area.
They were taken to a temporary shelter set up at the First Presbyterian Church.
Lock says the water receded quickly and crews opened up the evacuated area around 1:30 a.m. Thursday.
