Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The National Weather Service has confirmed a tornado touched down near Adairville, in south-central Kentucky.

The NWS office in Louisville said the EF2 tornado plowed a path estimated at five miles long and as wide as 300 yards.

There were three known injuries in Logan County, none of them life-threatening.

The assessment team said the tornado that struck around 2 p.m. Monday had winds of 135 mph. It killed some livestock and injured several horses that were expected to be put down.

One home was demolished and three others were damaged to the point they are uninhabitable. Numerous outbuildings were destroyed and three large grain bins were blown up to a quarter-mile.

In one of the homes severely damaged on Schochoh Road, two women told NewsChannel 5 they hid in the bathtub and only suffered minor injuries.

Adairville is about 35 miles north of Nashville.
