A crew from the National Weather Service was looking at storm damage to see if a tornado is to blame.

A report of a tornado sighting was enough to prompt an investigation from the National Weather Service.

The damage done to the trees around Garrard county is obvious. What isn't obvious is whether the winds or the ice storm did the damage.

Joe Sullivan, with NWS, says it's almost impossible to tell what damage belongs to what storm without an eyewitness account.

"That's going to be the problem for the next 6 months," he said.

But during his tour around Garrard county, he was able to reach a conclusion, Sullivan says not enough evidence to say it was a tornado.

But to those who were affected, it doesn't matter what you call it, whether it's a tornado or not they still have a lot of clean-up to do.
