LOUISA, Ky. (AP) - An emergency official says five people have been injured and a Walmart has been damaged in severe storms that have moved through northeast Kentucky.

Lawrence County Emergency Management Director Michael Woods said strong straight-line winds or possibly a tornado damaged the roof of a Walmart in Louisa on Monday. Woods said the inside of the Walmart “is pretty much unusable now.”

Woods also said several vehicles were overturned in the storm. He said some witnesses reported seeing a tornado on the ground.

Woods said five people suffered minor injuries but no deaths have been reported.
