Second Tornado Confirmed In Ky. Storms

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The National Weather Service has confirmed a second tornado in Kentucky, this one in Warren County, and said it occurred early Wednesday as strong winds were plowing through the state.

The weather service categorized the tornado as an EF-2 with winds from 120 to 125 mph. The damage occurred northeast of Bowling Green and may extend outside of Warren County.

One of the first places to feel the brunt of the storm was Christian County where a trucker with a load of flowers from Wisconsin had just passed Oak Grove on I-24 when it started to rain around 2 a.m. High winds caused the truck to overturn.

A weather service survey team was continuing its investigation.

Earlier, a tornado was confirmed in Marion County, northeast of Warren County. Two people were injured there and a trailer was blown off its foundation.

The rough weather plowed through ahead of a cold front moving into the state.
