A line of severe storms swept through southeastern Kentucky early Tuesday evening, felling trees and knocking out power.
Emergency management officials and dispatchers reported downed trees and power outages in Pulaski, Wayne and Laurel counties soon after the storms swept through.
Most of Whitley County was without power as of 5:30 p.m., according to a report by the National Weather Service in Jackson.
"It just nailed us," Corbin fire chief Barry McDonald said.
Never miss a local story.
He said trees were down and power was out all over the city, but crews removed the debris pretty quickly. No homes appeared to have suffered major damage, he said.
About 7:30 p.m., most of Williamsburg remained without power, but Kentucky Utilities was working to resolve the problem, Whitley County treasurer Jeff Gray said.
Gray had heard no reports of damaged homes.
A roof was damaged at the Beef 'O' Brady's in Corbin, and businesses in that shopping center closed after they lost power.
The National Weather Service received reports of funnel-cloud sightings in Pulaski, Clay and Bell counties, and a report of a possible tornado touchdown in the Levi Jackson State Park in Laurel County. None had been verified by Tuesday evening.
There were no immediate reports of injuries as a result of the storms.
