A line of severe storms in central Louisiana spawned tornadoes that touched down in three areas Monday, downing power lines, toppling trees and damaging buildings, officials said. Hundreds of miles away, the same storm system brought more rain to waterlogged Kentucky as highway crews struggled to reopen scores of roads closed almost a week ago by the worst flooding to hit the state in a decade.

Powerful thunderstorms Saturday hit Kentucky, Ohio and western Pennsylvania with flooding and tornadoes. At least two people were killed.

A 14-year-old boy died after he was struck by lightning while hanging tobacco in a barn east of Louisville, authorities said.

Residents and volunteers cleared away the wreckage of homes and businesses Saturday in the wake of tornadoes that killed five people in Tennessee and Kentucky. "All I can remember is rolling over and over and people screaming," Jerry Inman said as he picked through the rubble of his used car business. "I don't know how any of us lived through it." Ten people had sought shelter from the storm in a mobile home that served as Inman's office. A tornado left only the trailer's twisted metal chassis.
