Crews in Central Kentucky had their work cut out for them last night, as high winds caused significant damage in the bluegrass.
Sarah Barry said she was asleep in bed on Brigadoon Parkway in Lexington when she heard something hit her house. She said at first she thought a car had slammed into the side of her home.
“I lept across the room and a small chunk of ceiling plaster came down where my headboard was,” Barry said.
A large limb that was 18 to 20 inches in diameter had broken off of a tree and landed on her roof – right above her bedroom.
Eventually, the ceiling caved in as well.
Jerry Puckett said he was sitting in his kitchen on Marcellus Drive when a tree fell on his house.
“I just got on the computer and heard the wind,” Puckett said. “Of course the wind had been blowing all day.”
Puckett said no one wants this to happen to their house, but especially not on their birthday. Yesterday, Halloween, was Puckett’s birthday.
“I had a good night until I came home and then it kinda turned ugly,” he said.
Both homeowners said they have contacted their insurance agencies to help with the repairs.
A repair crew at Sarah Barry’s told her that they had fixed eight roofs in Lexington on Friday.
