LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Strong winds were moving through Kentuckiana Thursday, and trees and wires were down in some neighborhoods. 

A Facebook friend of WDRB's Tamara Evans sent us the picture on the right.

She says, "The brown area in the grass is where my car sits. Decided to move car due to strong wind, 20 minutes later...BANG!"

A tree also fell on Lydia Street, east of South Shelby, barely missing a home there. We'll have more damage updates as they become available.

Electric utilities reported scattered outages north and south of the Ohio River, with less than 5,000 customers without power in LG&E's service area and less than 700 in Duke Energy's area of southern Indiana. 

Stoplights were reported out at several Louisville intersections as late as 9 p.m.  There were also dozens of reports of utility wires down.

Flurries were heaviest in northern parts of the WDRB viewing area, especially in Lawrence and Orange Counties.  Flakes danced in the air at the WDRB studio in downtown Louisville and stuck to the grassy areas in Floyd County, Ind.

It was too early to tell if the colder temperatures and moisture would contribute to any slick roads.  Drivers were urged to be careful.  SnowFox text alerts and weather coverage are ready for News @ 10 and WDRB in the Morning, starting Friday at 5 a.m.
