(LEX 18)- Strong wind gusts overnight caused storm damage around the Bluegrass. Today, residents are working to clean up the mess left behind.

In Lexington, a construction wall at the Summit at Fritz Farm was blown down scattering debris into the roadway. Kentucky Mesonet measured a 44 MPH wind gust just across the street around the time the collapse happened.

A house had a close call with a tree in Berea. The tree snapped near a woman’s home.


High winds blew the roof off a boat storage facility in Wayne County. Amazingly, none of the boats inside were damaged.


If you have photos of storm damage send them to or post them on theLEX 18 Facebook page.
