MURRAY, Ky. (WTVF) — A woman died after possibly being struck by lightning on Murray State University's campus.

There are still questions surrounding Sunday night's incident. But Emergency Management Agency officials believe lightning may have struck the water she was wading through, causing her to go into cardiac arrest.

That same storm spawned tornadoes in several Kentucky counties.
