NWS Officials Confirm More Tornadoes In KY

Another tornado has been documented in Kentucky, this one in Clark County.

Officials with the National Weather Service were back out on Friday, surveying the storm damage. They are still trying to figure out just how many tornadoes touched down late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

In southern Fayette and northern Madison County, straight line winds are blamed for downing trees and damaging homes and barns. That ruling is according to the NWS office in Louisville.

In Clark County, the NWS confirmed an EF0 tornado touched down near Pretty Run Road, that's just north of Winchester off of KY 626. The twister packed winds of 85 miles an hour knocked down large trees and damaging some homes.

In Madison County, Woodland Country Estates was one of three subdivisions in where straight-line winds tore through homes.

So far, the National Weather Service has confirmed 22 tornadoes in 17 Kentucky counties, but teams are going to continue to look over the damage. So far, this is listed at the second biggest tornado outbreak in state history.
