Windy Recap

Posted: Updated:

Between the wind gradient and strong storms, Saturday was quiet a windy day. Some of the strongest gusts occurred outside of thunderstorms and out ahead of the strong cold front. For some the gusts were as high as the speed limit. The strongest gust around of the area was recorded in Morehead. Many were rocked by frequent 30 to 40 mph gusts during the afternoon and early evening hours.

These strong gusts produced sporadic damage across the area, including down trees and limb, and power outages. In Lexington, a tree fell on several cars on North Limestone. Other trees and power line blocked other roads around town. A number of residents in Nicholasville and Wilmore were without power Saturday night following the severe storm that tracked through southern Jessamine County.

While the Bluegrass dealt with straight-line winds, the National Weather Service confirmed two tornadoes in western Kentucky. An EF-1 tornado in Ohio County damaged numerous home in a two block area. The survey team estimated the winds reached 95 to 100 mph. 

The second was an EF-1 with estimated winds of 100 to 105 mph near Breckinridge-Meade line. this tornado skipped along a near two mile long path. A tobacco barn was pushed 15 feet, had its roof torn off, and several walls collapsed. One person in a mobile home sustained minor injuries.
