Meteorologist Alan Reppert of The Cadiz Record’s AccuWeather Forecasting Service reported sustained winds between 15 and 25 miles-per-hour, with gusts reaching 40 miles-per-hour. Reppert described the winds as straight line, with no circulation reported.
“There was a powerful storm passing through to the south that brought the windy weather,” said Reppert. He said that a powerful low-pressure center caused the unusual looking pattern on radar. While other areas saw heavy storms, including tornados, that killed at least 23 people, Trigg County mostly saw heavy winds that caused some damage.
Cadiz Public Works Director Kerry Fowler reported three trees falling across city roads. He called the trees small and said that roads re-opened quickly.
