Thunderstorms could bring down already damaged tree limbs

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Debris left behind from weeks of ice and snow could cause problems Thursday night as thunderstorm move into the Bluegrass.

Damaging wind is one of the main threats with Thursday evening's storms, which could bring already damaged tree limbs and scatter limbs that have already fallen.

That's why businesses, like Tree Pro in Lexington were busy Thursday removing limbs and branches from streets and yards.

"The last ice storm that came through wasn't as bad as some of the ones in the past," says James Sims, President of Tree Pro Inc, "but there's mainly just broken limbs and things like that."

Sims advises everyone to be on the look out for signs that trees could be shifting. He says watch out for bombs around the tree's root system.
