CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Severe weather rolled through the Tri-State Friday morning, knocking out power, downing power lines, and damaging trees and homes.

Winds gusted 51 mph at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport at 7:45 a.m. and 52 mph at Lunken Airport at 8:01 a.m., the National Weather Service reports.

At one point, power was knocked out to just over 9,000 Duke Energy customers at the height of the storm, according to the utility’s website.

Multiple counties across Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio saw Severe Thunderstorm and Tornado Warnings.

The National Weather Service said damage in southeastern Indiana, Warsaw, Kentucky, and Union County Ohio, was due to straight line winds, not a tornado.

It’s not clear yet how fast winds gusted in Patriot at the height of the fast-moving storm, they said.

No injuries were reported, according to the Switzerland County Sheriff’s Office. Dispatchers reported trees and phone lines falling down about 7:40 a.m.

Damage also was reported in Bright, Indiana, and Warsaw, Kentucky.
