The National Weather Service has confirmed there were several tornadoes in Kentucky Wednesday, including an EF 2 in Morgan County.

On Thursday, people can only clean up and talk about what that EF2 tornado left behind in Morgan County.

With 120mph winds the EF2 tornado destroyed everything in its path and amazingly without hurting anyone.

“If you line all that up, it runs in a straight line across this map from west to east right across that part of Morgan County,” Morgan County Judge Executive Tim Cronley said.

Wednesday’s tornado left destruction for people to clean up and assess in order to move on from what hit so quickly. Those who waited to see it were in shock today.

A carpet surplus store, flea market, and other small businesses are now rubble that people are sorting thru to savage what they can.

With a state of emergency declared by county officials, everyone is hoping the pickup moves quickly just like the tornado did.

People from insurance companies, county officials, and state emergency management teams have been working hard throughout the day to assess the damage.
