That brings Friday's total storm-related fatalities in Kentucky to 14 and at least 31 in three states. It wasn't immediately clear if the three deaths reported in West Liberty were in addition to one previously reported in Morgan County.

Fourteen people have also been reported killed in Indiana, and three in Ohio.
