Elsewhere in Kentucky and in surrounding states, tornados – including an EF4 in Indiana and EF3 tornados in eastern and northern Kentucky – and other storms resulted in almost 40 deaths and major damage.
“We were once again blessed, I tell you. God’s watching over us,” said Randy Wade of Trigg County Emergency Management.
There was, for the most part, only minor damage as a result of the storms, most of it consisting of wind and hail damage, said Wade, who also said their Emergency Operations building briefly lost power before the back-up generator kicked in.
The Kentucky Mesonet reported winds gusts of up to 71.3 miles per hour during the Wednesday storms, along with almost 2 and a half inches of rain over a short period of time, and wind gusts of up to 50.4 miles per hour during Friday’s storms.
