A number of Kentucky communities continue to deal with the aftermath of severe storms. That includes both tornadic and more winterlike conditions.

The new year started with confirmed tornadoes along with straight line winds, power outages, flash flooding, and damage to public and private properties in several Kentucky counties.

The National Weather Service says tornadoes touched down in Madison, Warren, Barren, and Taylor counties including three EF-1 rated storms. Tornado surveys are still being conducted in seven Kentucky counties. No fatalities or injuries were reported. 31 counties in all saw some type of weather impact.

Temperatures took a big dive Sunday along with some precipitation. The governor declared a state of emergency Saturday due to the severe weather.
