LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville hotel suffered damage in Thursday's storm.
Heavy winds whipped through the airport at an estimated 44-mile-per-hour winds. At one point, part of the roof on the Crowne Plaza Hotel was blown off.
At the time, the National Weather Service was calling for 60-mile-per-hour winds.
The top three floors of the hotel had water damage from the sprinkler system and officials say those guests were relocated to the Galt House.
At least 200 rooms were impacted.
Several cars in the parking lot were also damaged.
The Crown Plaza was hosting the National Junior Angus Show and was at 100 percent occupancy.
"We've also heard the sprinkler system went off in there and that other things could be ruined other than the top floors, so we were anxious to see, but we were very amazed to see all the debris. Amazed. And that's typically where we park," says Donna Guice, a hotel guest from Louisiana.
