(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A line of strong thunderstorms caused power outages and left some cleanup to be performed through much of the tri-state Friday morning.
The storms triggered the National Weather Service to issue a Tornado Warning for Union, Warsaw, and Walton, Kentucky. Severe Thunderstorm Warnings were issued in both southeastern Indiana and northern Kentucky.
Other storms packed strong winds up to 60 MPH and hail. A number of trees and branches have been reported to have fallen and blocking roads in Dearborn County on Salt Fork Road and State Road 48.

The wind gusts were enough to damage headstones at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Dearborn County. A portion of a roof was peeled off a barn down the road.
Southeastern Indiana REMC and Duke Energy reported a few hundred power outages, mainly concentrated in eastern Switzerland County and the Bright area. As of noon Friday, virtually all the outages were restored.
Cloudy skies will persist through the weekend. The National Weather Service is calling for showers and thunderstorms to dump up to one inch of rain on Sunday.
