The powerful storm that ripped through southeastern Indiana and into Kentucky on Friday pummeled the community of Henryville, just 15 miles up I-65 from Louisville.

At least 14 people were killed by the storm in Indiana as of Saturday, according to the Courier-Journal.

cn|2 videographer Kyle Lizenby on Friday evening captured this video of Henryville:

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels surveyed the damage late Friday night and declared a state of emergency. Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear did the same in the Bluegrass state where the storm was responsible for 18 deaths.

(Stay tuned for updates, including video from Morgan County and Kenton County, which both were hit hard).
