Damage assessments are still happening more than three days after a system of severe weather spawned numerous tornadoes throughout the Midwest.
The National Weather Service at Paducah says surveyors have found evidence of a weak, EF-0 tornado that touched down briefly Sunday night in Southeast Perry County near Indian Creek. The twister’s path was about 150 yards long and 50 yards wide with winds up to 70 miles per hour. It snapped some trees at the base and blew down limbs.
A survey team is looking at storm damage in Scott County today.
The same storm system produced more and stronger tornadoes as it proceeded east and northeast out of Missouri. 8 deaths have been attributed to the storms and weather officials say damage surveys could reveal it to have been the largest November tornado outbreak in the U.S. in recent years.
