NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Communities across the U.S. are cleaning up after strong storms destroyed homes, knocked out power for thousands of people and toppled power lines and trees.

Authorities in East Tennessee say there were no reports of any deaths or injuries from Sunday's storms, though at least 10 homes were destroyed.

Claiborne County emergency management spokeswoman Gina Breeding told The Associated Press it wasn't clear whether the destruction was the result of a tornado, but noted there were strong winds, lightning and heavy thunderstorms.

In Kentucky, National Weather Service forecaster Tony Edwards says some areas got softball-sized hail Sunday.

Massive hail also was reported in Michigan, where winds toppled trees and ripped the roofs off buildings. And in Ohio, some roads had been blocked by flash flooding.
