BOYLE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– Crews worked overnight in Boyle County to clean up after storms left behind a mess there.

Homes were damaged and trees knocked down, making driving conditions difficult Tuesday night.

Emergency Management Director Mike Wilder says crews were bracing for a long night as reports of damage rolled in, the worst of which included a home on Webster Road. 

"With the roof completely off and part of the back of the house has caved in," Wilder said. "We’re just making sure the property owner is safe and secure and they’re trying to get a few things out tonight to go somewhere else to stay."

Three homes suffered damage all within a half mile of each other near Highway 1822. 

Tree limbs and debris were scattered across roads, however cars could pass through, but slowly. 

There were also power lines knocked down at a farm which could’ve affected cattle, but KU was able to respond quickly. 

Wilder says there were no reported injuries.
