The storms that ripped across the region last night tore down trees, left thousands without power and kept police busy.
Kentucky Utilities spokesman Brian Phillips said about 5,000 KU customers were in the dark during the height of the storm. Inter-County Energy vice-president Sheree Gilliam said about 3,500 customers lost power.
Garrard County was one of the hardest hit; the storm knocked out electiricity to about 2,000 homes. Gilliam said crews worked all night to restore power.
Danville police responded to a call of a line down on Queen Street and two calls of fallen trees. One report said a tree was on fire, but police were unable to find the fire.
