Storms were peppered around the region on several days during June. Most of the severe weather came in the form of gusty winds, with just a few reports of hail and no tornadoes. The most widespread severe storms occurred on the 23rd when many locations across southern Indiana and central Kentucky experienced damaging wind gusts. There was one report of golf ball sized hail on the west side of Louisville.

There were 6 weather-related injuries during the month in central Kentucky, and they were all a result of lightning strikes. On the 22nd around 10 o'clock in the morning four employees working at the Cabinet for Health and Family Services in Richmond received a shock when lightning struck the building. Then on the 26th two ambulance workers were struck when they were loading a car accident victim into the ambulance. They were treated and released in nearby Leitchfield.
