LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The show will go on, no matter what Mother Nature has in store, but the high Ohio River will impact parts of Thunder Over Louisville.
With those more rain chances on the rain, and the recent flooding we've already seen, plans are being tweaked.
"The weather has only really affected us in two places and that's west off Third Street on River Road," said Col. Lee Dennison with Louisville Metro EMS.
Louisville Metro EMS will have 50 employees roaming the waterfront on foot, bikes, and in ambulances. River Road is closed from Third to Eighth Street, which means you can't go under the Belvedere, and waters have currently flooded a quarter of the great lawn.
"When we were down there today, we watched a full-sized tree float down, root ball and all," said Matt Gibson with the Derby Festival. "It's amazing to see how fast these things are traveling down the river. It's like nothing we've seen before."
That's one of the reasons boaters are being warned to stay off the water. The Derby Festival is just going with the flow and says it will shift entrances to accommodate the flood waters.
"After 22 years of doing this show, we have watched our crowd move east anyway," said Gibson. "So it's very easy for us to move those assets."
Cox Park is now closed, but you can park just across the street at Thurman Hutchison park and walk to watch Thunder.
