NWS: Straight-line winds caused damage in Montgomery Co.

UPDATE: The National Weather Service tells WKYT it was not a tornado that hit Montgomery County, but straight-line winds of 85-95 mph.


MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Thursday night's storms and severe weather wreaked havoc in many communities across Central and Western Kentucky, but Montgomery County and the Camargo community was particularly hard hit.

The storm damaged homes and vehicles, and knocked down many trees.

Some people there think a tornado may have caused the damage. We spoke to people whose homes were damaged by the storm.

"My wife came running out the door, and she said, 'What was that?' and about that time, all of the windows busted out of the front of the house and the ceiling fell in," said Vaughn Spencer.

The National Weather Service will visit Camargo at 11:15 this morning to survey the damage.
