What’s expected to be one of two rounds of severe thunderstorms rolled through the region Thursday afternoon and brought with them a variety of weather warnings and some damage.
The first severe thunderstorm warning came around 4:30 p.m. and a couple more would follow, along with a tornado watch that lasted until 8 p.m. Christian County Emergency Management Director Randy Graham says there were multiple reports of downed trees on Greenville Road, Old Madisonville Road and other locations throughout the county. He says there were also reports of flash flooding on some roads and sporadic power outages across Christian County, including on Fort Campbell Boulevard.
Todd County Emergency Management Director Daniel Smith says that county also had some water reported over roads and trees down. There was a house that had some damages caused by a falling tree.
Trigg County EM Director David Bryant relayed that in Trigg County there were no reports of damage as of the afternoon hours.
The main hazards with these storms are damaging winds and hail, along with flooding where the ground was already saturated with rain. There’s an enhanced risk for more severe storms through the overnight hours and into Friday morning.
