High winds caused damage and power outages across much of Kentucky Thursday.
A tornado touched down Thursday morning near Paducah, leaving some damage and at least one injury, according to officials.
A state of emergency was declared in McCracken County where the storm spread damage around a 5-square-mile area, knocking down power lines and covering roadways in debris.
State police said at least one injury has been reported in McCracken County from the storm. Emergency crews were going door-to-door in the area to check on residents.
Several utilities companies reported power outages as the storms moved across the state taking down trees and power lines.
Several buildings sustained damage in the Louisville area as the winds gusted as high as 69 mph. Vehicles were damaged when the wind blew off some of the front facade of the Plaza 3 parking garage at Norton Women & Children’s Hospital on Dutchman’s Lane. No one was injured and no structural damage was done to the parking garage.
