A 67-year old woman was struck by lightning Thursday evening while standing in a field on her farm on Crenshaw Lane, just southeast of Wilmore, according to county emergency officials.

The victim's name hasn't been released.

Authorities said she was taken to U.K. Hospital in Lexington.

Numerous trees and power lines were reported down from thunderstorms in Fayette, Jessamine, Scott, Woodford, Madison, Scott, Clark and Bath Counties.

Emergency officials in Montgomery County said high winds damaged a billboard on U.S. 60 near the Fairgrounds entrance.  No one was hurt.
