Neighbors, Crews Clean Up After Storms

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) - Utility crews and homeowners worked Sunday night into Monday morning to clean up the mess left behind by a round of severe thunderstorms.

The heavy winds and rain took down a number of trees and power lines around Lexington.

“I guess we got the blunt end of it,” said neighbor Phillip Talbot.

For Phillip Talbot, Sunday was supposed to be a day of fishing and relaxation.

"This is a wonderful father’s day,’ said Talbot.

Now after a round of strong thunderstorms, he has a lot of work before his family can sleep in their home again.

"As soon as the wind hit, I'm thinking in my mind that there’s going to be trees everywhere,” said Talbot.

Talbot says he was on the porch when the strong winds and heavy rain hit Maple Grove Estates off Georgetown Road.

When he went inside the storm got even worse.

“ I go and look out the middle hallway window and I look up and all I see is a tree coming down and I screamed back to him, I said, dad, tree! We both just hit the deck,” said Talbot.

Around the mobile home park, other neighbors saw their own damage from the storms some started clean up right away

“Yeah, it took out everything here,” said Talbot.

More than 150 people lost power after trees fell onto power lines off Georgetown Road.

Kentucky Utilities says the power should be restored by early morning on Monday. 

“I've got kids and a pregnant fiancée. The air conditioning and trying to keep the food cool is going to be the main thing,” said Talbot.

Phillip Talbot and his family plan to find a hotel until they can get everything cleaned up and move back in.

He calls the afternoon an inconvenience more than anything else.

Georgetown Road at Berea Road is back open in both directions after utility crews repaired the damage.
