Tornadoes Or Just Strong Wind?

The National Weather Service was out on Thursday to figure out if storm damage across the state was caused by twisters.

They sent survey teams to Whitley, Garrard, Madison and Knox counties.

The assessment crews looked at the damage in those counties to determine if tornadoes touched down in the state on Wednesday afternoon.

So far, they've ruled it was straight line winds that caused the damage in Garrard, Whitley and Madison counties.

No word yet on the NWS ruling in Knox County.

    does it matter which it was? I really dont think the Mountian people are cared for anyway, unless the coal stops moving then it would be a National Disaster!

    I live on Hwy 26 in rockholds and believe that it was a small tornado that swept through my front yard uprooting 4 apple trees, tossing my trampoline 300 feet, throwing my swings across the yard and tossing my grill off my porch. The pressure caused my 11 year old sons ears to hurt and the winds were fierce.
