Scattered damage, large hail from storms

JACKSON, Ky. (AP) -- Storms have battered parts of Kentucky, leaving reports of scattered damage in their wake.

Forecaster Hal Klingenberg at the National Weather Service office in Jackson says the agency has no reports of tornado touchdowns, but there are many instances of other severe weather.

Tennis ball-size hail was reported a mile south of London, a shed was blown onto a road in Whitley County, where winds also ripped off a porch roof.

There have been no reports of death or serious injury from the storms that occurred Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night across the commonwealth.

Cooler and calmer weather is forecast heading into the weekend.
