PARIS, Kentucky — The National Weather Service has confirmed six tornadoes hit Kentucky during storms that dragged wind and hail across parts of the state.

The weather service reported one woman was injured in Bourbon County when an EF-1 tornado pulled her from her home Tuesday. The weather service said she landed in her driveway and required stitches. Paris City Manager John Plummer told the Lexington Herald-Leader he had spoken to the woman and she was OK.

Four other twisters — two in Bath County, and one each in Scott and Harrison counties — were also designated EF-1, which is next to weakest on the scale and indicates winds were 85 to 110 mph. The remaining tornado was a weaker EF-O, near New Columbus in Owen County.

The weather service said homes, warehouses, roofs, outbuildings, trees and power lines were damaged in the storms. In Bourbon County, a tanker flipped.
