Thunderstorms End Heat Wave, Cut Power for Thousands

Some much-needed rain and cooler temperatures finally got to Lexington on Sunday via some powerful but scattered thunderstorms that knocked out power in spots across Fayette County. The storms also affected power around the state, including spots in Bourbon, Clark and Fleming counties. Although some areas in Central Kentucky saw no rain from early storms, other areas received flash-flood warnings. The weather forecast calls for highs in the 80s all week.
