Episode Narrative Clusters of thunderstorms developed along a cold front as it moved east across the Mississippi Valley. As the atmosphere became very unstable due to daytime heating and hot south winds, the clusters evolved into a well-organized mesoscale convective system during the afternoon. Numerous reports of damaging winds accompanied storms within the complex as it moved southeast. The tail end of the complex stalled over the Hopkinsville area during the evening, causing a flash flood.
Event Narrative West of Hopkinsville near Julien, a few large trees were blown down, including one that was snapped. One barn was destroyed along Highway 272, along with a small shed and other small outbuildings. Some corn crops were damaged. Near the Hopkinsville-Christian County Airport, a tree fell on a home. The canopy of a gas station was partially blown down in Hopkinsville. Large branches were blown down onto a few Hopkinsville streets. Power outages were sporadic. Three flags were blown down.
