Episode Narrative Moist and unstable air was located over Eastern Kentucky on April 26th 2007. This, combined with a cold front moving through the area in the late afternoon and evening hours, lead to numerous severe thunderstorms across the area. The atmospheric conditions were also favorable for producing tornadoes. While much of the damage that occurred in the area was due to straight line winds, a storm survey team from the National Weather Service found evidence of this tornado touchdown in Fleming county.
Event Narrative Three barns were totally destroyed, a 70 foot tall concrete block grain silo was blown over, and dozens of trees were uprooted and snapped.
