HENRYVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- A coroner in southeastern Kentucky says four people have died in storms there, bringing the total number of weather deaths in the state for the day to at least nine.

The powerful storms that stretched from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes have killed at least 24 people in all, including 14 in Indiana and one in Ohio.

Laurel County Coroner Doug Bowling says the bodies of two men and two women were found Friday night in three separate residences that he described as "flattened."

Gov. Steve Beshear's office said earlier that four people died in Kentucky's Menifee County and one in Kenton County.
