Episode Narrative A deepening low pressure center tracked north-northeast from northeast Texas to eastern Missouri, then eventually into Iowa. Strong southeast winds gradually turned into the southwest. Peak gusts were generally from 40 to 48 mph across western Kentucky. A trained spotter in Owensboro measured a peak gust of 48 mph. An off-duty meteorologist at Calvert City in northern Marshall County measured a gust to 46 mph. In Paducah, an 85-foot tall radio communication tower on top of a hospital broke off about 17 feet up from the base. The tower landed across the hospital roof. Scattered power outages were reported due to weakened tree limbs falling on power lines.
