Episode Narrative The remnants of Hurricane Ike moved across the Ohio Valley on the morning and afternoon of September 14th. This system, along with an upper level trough and a surface cold front approaching the region, combined to bring very strong surface wind gusts to the area. Widespread damage occurred with measured wind gusts up to 75 mph, along with 7 known injuries and 2 fatalities across parts of central Kentucky. Seventy-five percent of all Louisville Metro electrical customers - more than 300,000 homes and businesses - lost power for up to a week due to the storm, leaving many businesses and schools closed during the week. Statewide, nearly 600,000 customers lost power due to the storm. Cost estimates were reported at around 10 million dollars across the Commonwealth, with 4.2 million of that in the Louisville Metro area alone. 33 counties in Kentucky were declared major disaster areas by President Bush.
Event Narrative A Spotter reported power lines down across the county.
