Christian County dodged another bullet when it came to severe weather this afternoon, as there was some minor damage—but nothing like what it could have been.
There were two separate severe thunderstorm warnings for Christian County and a wind gust of 83 miles per hour was recorded on Fort Campbell during the latest storm. A tornado warning was issued for northern Todd County at one point and a severe thunderstorm warning later, but a dispatcher said there was no damage recorded there.
A roof was blown off a home near Bremen in Muhlenberg County, while a portion of the roof was blown off the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet headquarters on North Main Street in Madisonville.
A home on Jaygeo Street in Madisonville also sustained damage, with the back of its roof peeled back and the other side blown away.
Golf ball sized hail damaged homes in Trigg County along Princeton Road and Stone Street. More significant and widespread damage was reported in areas to the north and south of the southern Pennyrile and no injuries were reported in Christian and surrounding counties.
It truly was a dodged bullet, as the Storm Prediction Center had issued a high risk for severe weather for the first time in nearly a year.
