The decision to let school out early by administrators with the Christian County School system turned out to be a wise one.
The two severe thunderstorms that did impact the area came through between 3 and 4:15, times when students would have normally be riding on school buses.
Christian County Schools dismissed elementary students at 11:45 and middle and high schoolers at 12:45. Todd, Trigg and many other school systems made similar decisions, as did Heritage Christian Academy.
Some residents who were afraid to stay at home during the storms made their way to designated storm shelters in Christian County and rode out the weather with others looking for a safe place.
