Wicked Winds Pound Kentucky

Wednesday afternoon was a rough one across much of Kentucky, as severe storms blew through the bluegrass.

As feared, the strong winds and heavy rain left damage in several areas, some still reeling from last month's ice and snow.

There were several storm and tornado warnings throughout the afternoon.

We have damage reports coming in from around the state.

In Garrard County, strong winds destroyed a carport and caused some roof damage at a home in Lancaster and led to power outages. A Lancaster police officer reported a funnel cloud just south of town.

In Laurel County, trees and power lines were blown down across the county. One tree did hit a home on Roy Black Road in the East Bernstadt area, but no one hurt

In Lexington, utility lines were blown down on Emerson Drive at Whispering Hills Drive, there were power outages along Harrodsburg Road near Alexandira and there was some damage at Commonwealth Stadium.
