The National Weather Service says a line of storms that moved through the Louisville area this afternoon brought strong winds that knocked out power to about twelve thousand homes and businesses. Some homes were damaged, as well.

Officials with the Kentucky Public Service Commission say there are about  93 hundred power outages in storm damaged areas of Kentucky, as of  mid-morning Monday. That number does not include outages in areas served by municipal utilties or by rural electric cooperatives in the Tennessee Valley system.
