Several roads in Kentucky still covered with water after Thursday's storms

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a number of roads in the Heartland are still covered with water after yesterday's storms.

Roads in Carlisle, Fulton, Hickman, Marshall and McCracken counties are still covered as of noon on Friday.

Power restored to Calloway Co. residents after storms

Power has been restored to most of the 10,000 residents in Calloway County, Kentucky on Thursday night, March 31.

According to Keith Todd with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, personnel are taking down the four-way stops and restoring signals to normal service. He said this will be an extended process.

According to the Calloway County Sheriff's Department, the power outage was affecting parts of Calloway County and the city of Murray.

They say a huge lightning strike in the southeastern part of Murray knocked out the power.

There were also reports of trees down in the southwest part of the county. At least one home on Wiswell Road has some damage.

The sheriff's department said crews are still out trying to find the exact source of the power outage.

First Alert Action Day issued

We are issuing a First Alert Action Day for Thursday due to the threat of significant severe weather in a few areas.

Right now it appears we will see two rounds of storms.

Round one will move through the Heartland during the morning hours. At this time these storms do not look to be severe but heavy rain and small hail will be possible.

After the first round of storms moves through a cold front will enter the area. It is along this front during the afternoon hours where we will see scattered thunderstorms develop. These storms will not be numerous but any storm that develops will have the possibility of producing up to baseball size hail and isolated tornadoes.

The most likely locations for seeing severe storms tomorrow will be along and east of the Mississippi River.
