I was wondering which neighborhoods flooded during the "great flood of '09"?

From what I've read it looks like most parts of the city were hit, but some worse than others. Were there areas that were spared? Has anybody seen a map of areas affected?

From what I saw the west end in general was the hardest hit (especially Parkland/California just south of Broadway). The area around Churchill Downs and UofL was hit pretty hard too, as well as parts of Shively and Old Louisville. Across the river parts of New Albany were hit fairly hard.

Here you go... shows the areas that got the most and then flooded.

Wow, based on that map even the areas outside the area hit the worst seemed to get a lot of rain.

I think that shows the amount of rainfall, not flooding.
