Powerful storms kill at least 13 in two states

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A spokesman for Kentucky's governor says that five people have died in severe weather in that state, bringing the death toll from Friday's storms around the country to at least 13 people.

Terry Sebastian, a spokesman for Gov. Steve Beshear, says the people were killed in two different counties as the state was raked by a tornado-spawning weather system.

At least eight people died Friday in Indiana where tornadoes pummeled small towns in the southern part of the state.

The band of powerful storms stretching from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes is the second deadly tornado outbreak this week.
