High winds, tornado warning highlight Thursday night

At approximately 8:20 on Thursday night, the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for western Grayson County, including Caneyville and surrounding areas. Radar indicated a rotating thunderstorm cell which was about nine miles north of Morgantown, and heading toward Caneyville.

As the cell approached Caneyville from the south, the thunderstorm began to unravel; losing strength. The tornado warning was lifted by the National Weather Service at 8:41, and was replaced with a severe thunderstorm warning for eastern Grayson County, which expired at 9:10.

The thunderstorms carried quite a wallop, with 60 mph winds, heavy rain, and in some instances, hail pelting Grayson and surrounding counties.

There were no tornado touch-downs reported in the area, but at times, lightening was severe, with a brief power outage reportedly plaguing North Leitchfield.

Not long after the warnings were lifted, there was a report of a truck stuck in high water on Windy Ridge Road, just outside of Caneyville, but the passengers in the truck were able to extract the vehicle from the high water before first responders arrived on the scene.
