Kentucky is still dealing with the aftermath of last nights storm.

One Lexington man is hoping he still has his cars after a tree fell on both of his vehicles.

Wayne Fain didn't lose power Sunday night like the 1,300 Kentucky Utilities customers who did.

But he lost a tree.

According to Lexington officials, there are multiple trees and power lines down all over the city.

Fain says while KU is working to restore power to its customers, he and his grandson will be cutting tree branches to get to the 2 cars that sit under them.

"I'm thankful, yes I am. It didn't hit the house, of course my car is just as important, so I'm hoping there's no damage under their neither," says Fain.

KU says it hopes to have power restored to all their customers by Monday night.
