The National Weather Service says a high-end EF-2 tornado touched down in Larue County Wednesday night.  We didn't have any tornadoes closer to Lexington, but the storms still caused damage.

Driving into Casey County, we saw very few signs of storm damage.  Until we came across a house with a tree on it.

Brandi Dean says it was a quiet night.  Sure it was raining, but nothing out of the ordinary, until the wind picked up.

"All the windows shook," said Dean.

And then came a crash.

"I looked outside, and all I could see was leaves," said Dean.

For a better look, Dean went outside.  What she saw did not make her feel any better.

"yeah, I kind of started freaking out a little bit.  Oh, I was scared!  I came outside, and it was just black and trees, and I thought the power was fixing to go out, but luckily it didn't.

The tree crashed around midnight.  Brandi called her mom at work, and said you should come home.

"I worked overnight.  I haven't had any sleep, and I got to go back in tonight.  We could have been in bad shape if the whole thing had went," said Stacey Dean, Brandi's Mother.

The Fire Department and KU came.  The utility company cut some of the branches off the power lines.  The Deans think straight line winds knocked their tree over.

Remarkably, this isn't the first time the family is calling itself lucky.  In a previous storm, wind picked a trampoline and threw it into a tree, narrowly missing their house.
