Lexington Herald-Leader - Charlotte Yaden sat on her front porch Sunday afternoon trying to comfort her dog Molly Rose as Yaden gazed out at the debris surrounding her Cathy Lane home.

One of its windows was knocked out — a neighbor’s trash can the likely culprit. "It didn’t sound like a locomotive or a train," Yaden said of Sunday’s storm.
