(LEX 18) – Multiple storm damage reports are coming in to the LEX 18 Newsroom.

Most of the severe weather is moving out of the southeastern Kentucky counties. That being said, thunderstorms are still capable of producing damaging wind gusts and hail; not to mention torrential rainfall. Use caution this evening.

Here is what we are getting from the National Weather Service and media outlets in the area:

MAGOFFIN COUNTY: Multiple trees are reported down across KY RT 7 in the Mason Area.

FLOYD COUNTY: A roof has been blown from a building in downtown Prestonsburg near Arnold Avenue. Burke Franklin gave us photos of the damage. Several cars appear to have been damaged.
