Episode Narrative A surface cold front extended across Illinois into central Missouri early in the morning August 5. This moved into southern Indiana and into central Kentucky during the mid morning hours. This front interacted with warm humid air and moderate instability across central Kentucky to produce strong to severe thunderstorms with damaging wind gusts. In addition, a lightning strike in south central Kentucky killed a teenager who was working in her family's fields.
Event Narrative A tree fell on a car in Cynthiana. Several other trees were also blown down throughout the county.
