From the Associated Press;

A strong storm barreling through southeastern Kentucky has damaged homes and businesses and left power customers in the dark, but no injuries have been reported.

Harlan County Emergency Management Director David McGill said an estimated 6,700 Kentucky Utilities customers were without power after the storm Monday afternoon.

He said strong winds damaged three businesses and numerous homes in the Evarts community of Harlan County and destroyed one home in the Harlan area.

McGill said Monday night that numerous trees and power lines were down in the county.

Dozens of tornado, flood and thunderstorm warnings and watches were issued Monday around the state. The National Weather Service said rain and thunderstorms, some with damaging winds, were expected to continue statewide into Tuesday.
