As predicted, the overnight hours turned out to be quite stormy here in south central Kentucky. Severe Thunderstorms and a few tornado warnings made for some tense moments as the storms passed deep into the night.  In Hart County, the number of trees down, barns damaged and debris has caused Hart County School officials to delay the start of school by 1 hour.  Early this morning we got a rundown of some of the early problems from Tony Richey, Barren County Emergency Management Director.  He said there were a number of trees down, barns destroyed and other debris blocking roadways. Some live power lines were reported in the Southern part of the county, around Haywood.  In Cave City Highway 70 and the old Lexington Road is closed due to a barn down.   Cave City Chevrolet Building is reported to have lots of structural damage.  Hart County Schools are starting the day 1 hour late due to debris and trees down in their area.  At one point FRECC had about 7000 customers without power.  At one point the Glasgow Electric Plant Board had 800 customers without power.  Citizens are urged to report blocked roadways and power outages to the proper authorities
