NWS Crews Confirmed Pulaski / Lincoln Tornados

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Crews are out in Kentucky surveyed damage from a storm that spawned at least one confirmed tornado Friday, causing minor injuries and high winds and hail.

Joe Sullivan of the Louisville National Weather Service Office told WKYT-TV his crew is surveying damage in both the Eubank area of Pulaski County and the Broughtentown area of southern Lincoln County.

Brian Shottmer of the Jackson National Weather Service Office told WKYT-TV that they too would be surveying both areas, Eubank in Pulaski County and Broughtentown in southern Lincoln County. Both crews are looking for signs that could firm that it was indeed tornados struck that area.

Shottmer confirmed Saturday afternoon that an F-0 with winds of about 85 miles per hour struck in the Broughtentown area of Lincoln County, about 80 miles southeast of Louisville.

In southwestern Kentucky, a tornado was confirmed near the community of Mannington where it destroyed a mobile home and injured two people.
