Episode Narrative The second and more significant severe weather outbreak of the day occurred as a cold front swept east across the Mississippi Valley. Scattered thunderstorms developed along and ahead of the front late in the afternoon. The storms organized into supercells and short lines during the evening. Over a dozen tornadoes occurred in western Kentucky.
Event Narrative A large area of trees was snapped and uprooted in the Pennyrile State Forest. Some of the trees were 50 to 60 feet tall. A clear path was seen through the forest. A mobile home was blown down a hill and smashed as the tornado crossed Highway 109. An occupant of the mobile home was briefly trapped and sustained lacerations and bruises. The road to the mobile home was blocked by numerous downed trees and trailer debris. Two other mobile homes were severely damaged. A barn were destroyed. Peak winds were estimated near 115 mph.
