Monday Storms Cause Scattered Damage in the Mid-State
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — Mid-State storms caused scattered, mostly minor damage Monday afternoon, but south-central Kentucky took quite a beating.
The National Weather Service has confirmed a tornado touched down near Adairville, 35 miles north of Nashville. Meteorologists say the EF2 tornado had sustained winds of 135 mph and plowed a path estimated at five miles long and 300 yards wide.
There were three known injuries in Logan County, Kentucky, none of them life-threatening. One home was demolished and three others were damaged.
Here in Middle Tennessee a lot of trees and electric lines were knocked down, but power was quickly restored. A few homes suffered minor to moderate damage.
WSMV-TV reports that a Murfreesboro woman was briefly trapped in her car by a falling tree and electric lines.
The Weather Service will determine Tuesday whether the mid-state damage was the result of a tornado or straight-line winds.
