Heavy winds in Thursday's storms caused damage in both Anderson and Jessamine counties.
A storm blew off a roof of an Anderson County day care center, Abundant Life Christian Learning Tree House, and flipped over two FedEx trailers at nearby Florida Tile, according to The Anderson News. No injuries were reported, but there were a few close calls.
Tommy Wise of Lawrenceburg told The Anderson News that he used a car to shield his grandson and himself from debris coming from the day care center's roof.
"I no sooner picked him up out of his car seat when the sheet metal started coming off the roof," Wise said. "I was scared to death. I had no idea what was going on."

The children had left the day care center about an hour earlier.
In Jessamine County, wind blew bleachers across the baseball field at City County Park, said John Carpenter, a Jessamine emergency management coordinator.
A local gas station's awning was damaged by the winds, Carpenter said.
Those areas won't get a respite from storm damage either, as remnants from Tropical Storm Bill are expected to hit Kentucky, beginning Friday night. The forecast for the coming week: heavy rains and severe storms, meteorologist Chris Bailey said.
