Episode Narrative A bowing line of thunderstorms increased in intensity as it moved east across western Kentucky into an increasingly unstable atmosphere. Damaging surface winds were enhanced by a strong 50-knot rear-inflow jet feeding into the complex.
Event Narrative Damaging winds occurred in the Oak Grove area, southwest of Hopkinsville. A wind gust to 63 mph was measured at the junction of Interstate 24 and Highway 107 southwest of Hopkinsville. Numerous trees were down, blocking roads. Shingles were off some roofs. Interstate signs were blown down, partially blocking the intersection of Interstate 24 and Highway 41A.
