Officials confirmed that an EF1 or weak EF2 tornado touched down in Christian County, Kentucky.

The worst of the weather struck Trigg and Christian counties Sunday afternoon into evening.

Strong winds forced roofs off homes and destroyed large structures.

Mary Norfleet has lived in the area since 1962 and said she’s never seen anything like it.

“It was only raining, then at once there was a big boom and when I looked out, I saw the buildings lying on the ground," she told NewsChannel 5 reporter Matthew Torres.

Many residents lost power as the storms moved through the area but electricity has since been restored.

NWS crews were expected to arrive Monday morning to survey the damage.
