Narrative: The tornado touched down in Owen County south of the
intersection of Leaning Oak Road and Dudley Pike. The storm quickly
crossed into Scott County and struck North Rays Fork Road where it
snapped and uprooted trees. Moving to the east southeast, tree
damage was found along South Rays Fork Road east of Stonewall. The
tornado lifted just west of the Harrison County line. The only
structural damage along the path was to a home near the top of a
small hill close to the end of the path. The porch roof was ripped
from the home and thrown over the building, with significant roof
damage.  Also, an above-ground pool was destroyed.

The National Weather Service thanks Scott County Emergency
