LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- SKY11 was up Tuesday morning retracing the path of Monday night's strong thunderstorm.

That storm wasn’t even considered severe but folks living along Westport Road in the Lyndon area are certainly dealing with the damage from it.

Crews were working to restore power and at one point more than 14,000 customers were without it.

Westport Village was unscathed by the quick moving thunderstorm but less than a mile away, Ormsby was temporarily blocked off so crews could restore power after several poles were snapped along that street.

Right off Ormsby on Applewood, crews were working to remove a big tree blown over on top of a house that had snapped in half. No injuries were reported.

And just down the street many residents are cleaning up tree limbs.

On Fountain Avenue there was a house that lost a third of its roof. A neighbor inherited that roof right on top of his van parked in between his house and his neighbor's house.

It was a quick moving storm that quickly did damage.
