Strong winds knock down trees around UK campus

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Strong winds caused some problems in Lexington Tuesday night.

On Maxwell Street, a large tree fell onto the Legal Clinic, damaging parts of the building.

Several trees fell around the UK campus, causing a few scary moments for people living in that area.

"All I heard was two cracks and a fall, then I looked out my window and there's the tree," said Patrick Kilkelly, who lives nearby.

Nearby, on Linden Walk, a tree fell on some power lines, knocking out electricity in that area. On Rose Lane, we're told a tree also fell on a phone line.
