Officials from the National Weather Service have confirmed that a low-grade tornado with 85-mile-per-hour winds touched down in Clark County - part of a deadly line of storms that wreaked havoc across the state on Wednesday. The twister tore a path of damage about 150 yards wide and 3/4 of a mile long in an area near Pretty Run Road in northern Clark County, said Gary Epperson, director of Winchester-Clark County Emergency Management.
High winds caused damage to the gable of at least one home and damaged numerous barns, outbuildings and trees.
Weather service officials, who surveyed the county on Friday, have classified the tornado as an EFO, the lowest level on the Enhanced Fujita scale of tornado damage.
"It's the least of the least when it comes to tornados, but based on the damage and their inspection, they pretty much indicated it was probably a small tornado," Epperson said.
