            *** 1 INJ ***
            THE TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN JUST INSIDE THE
            BRECKINRIDGE-MEADE COUNTY LINE NORTH OF
            IRVINGTON. IT PUSHED A LARGE TOBACCO BARN 15
            FEET EASTWARD, TORE OFF ITS ROOF, AND
            COLLAPSED SEVERAL WALLS. DEBRIS FROM THE
            BARN WAS SCATTERED OVER A HALF MILE
            DOWNWIND. THE TORNADO MOVED EAST-NORTHEAST,
            SKIPPING ALONG A WOODED AREA WHERE SEVERAL
            TREES WERE SNAPPED OR UPROOTED, THEN HIT A
            MOBILE HOME ON FACKLER ROAD, ROLLING THE
            ANCHORED UNIT SEVERAL TIMES, DESTROYING THE
            HOME. THE OWNER SUSTAINED ONLY MINOR
            INJURIES AS HE ROLLED OVER WITH HIS HOUSE,
            CRAWLING OUT OF A HOLE AFTER IT SETTLED. A
            GARAGE ON THE PROPERTY WAS ALSO DESTROYED.
            THE TORNADO CONTINUED SKIPPING ALONG THE
            NORTHWEST SIDE OF SANDY HILL RD, DAMAGING
            OUTBUILDINGS ON ANOTHER FARM, BEFORE
            CROSSING KY HIGHWAY 261 AT GUSTON RD. A
            SPLIT LEVEL HOME ON GUSTON RD HAD PART OF
            ITS ROOF REMOVED, WITH INSULATION SPATTERED
            ON THE LEE SIDE OF THE HOME. AN OCCUPANT OF
            THE HOME REPORTED HE WAS DESCENDING THE
            STAIRS AS THE ROOF WAS TORN OFF, AND WAS
            BRIEFLY DRAWN UP THE STAIRS AS IT OCCURRED.
            DEBRIS FROM THE SPLIT LEVEL HOME WAS DROPPED
            ACROSS THE ROAD, WHERE A FEW MORE TREES WERE
            SNAPPED AND UPROOTED. THE TORNADO THEN
            FLATTENED A FENCE AND PEELED A SECTION OF
            SHEET METAL ON AN OUTBUILDING BEFORE
            LIFTING. THE NWS THANKS MEADE COUNTY EMA AND
            REMOTE AERIAL FOR THEIR ASSISTANCE IN THIS
            DAMAGE SURVEY.
