LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The National Weather Service has confirmed two tornadoes during severe storms in Kentucky that toppled trees and power lines.

The weather service in Louisville says storms on Friday produced an EF-1 tornado in Hart County and an EF-0 tornado in Metcalfe County. In addition to strong winds, there were multiple reports of hail, ranging from the size of quarters in Louisville to the size of softballs in Tompkinsville.
