On Newtown Pike two utility poles broke, and power lines fell.  At the height of the storm 5,000 people lost their power. 

Thursday morning nearly an inch of rain fell, knocking trees down, and making the roads wet. 

At 5th and Upper this car went into a vacant building.  Police say it ran a red light, hit another car, and smashed into the building.

"There was one big boom and then it was like just right after that another big boom," said one neighbor.

Police say the driver suffered multiple injuries.  Police say the building was unstable, and crews knocked the vacant building down around 4 PM.

KU expects to have Newtown Pike reopened before midnight.
