||A large thunderstorm complex moved from eastern Kentucky into West Virginia during the late afternoon on the 8th. In the wake of that feature, a strong upper air disturbance helped refire convection over southern Kentucky. Those thunderstorms moved east into far western Virginia just after dark. The upper air feature helped obtain rotation in the storms. An EF0 tornado touched down just north of Clintwood with mainly tree damage. This was only the second recorded tornado for Dickenson County since 1950. The other was during the April 1974 outbreak.
The storms lost their rotation later that evening, but a narrow broken train of showers and thunderstorms continued to roll east out of Kentucky and into southern West Virginia after midnight. This activity brushed Buchanan County. Northern Buchanan County received 1.75 to 2 inches of rain on a relatively wet ground. Small stream floodng was reported during the early monring hours of May 9th, but the severity was much less, compared to nearby counties in Kentucky and West Virginia.
