MSD: Avoid flooded areas, water could make you sick

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The heavy rains mean we could see flooding in some areas of WAVE Country.

MSD says you should avoid contact with water in the Ohio River, as well as creeks, streams, and drainage ditches.

The water may contain sewage and storm water runoff contaminants that could make you sick.

If you, your family or your pets do come in contact with possibly contaminated water, wash it off with warm soapy water.
