Storm hampers travel, stalls power

A number of county roads in the northern part of Crittenden County were blocked or partially blocked by downed trees and limbs, courtesy of this afternoon's heavy thunderstorm.

Most of the damage was in an area between Ky. 91 North and the Forest Grove area of Ford's Ferry Road.

A portion of Forest Grove Road is impassable, and a home (pictured) on that road was slightly damaged.

More damage was noted in the Fredonia and Frances areas in the southern part of the county. Downed trees and damaged buildings have been reported on Jackson School Road.

Kenergy was also reporting at 5pm that more than 100 customers were without power in the Fredonia area. And Kentucky Utilities had about 40 customers without power in that same area.
