Survey Summary:

The Kentucky Mesonet measured 92 mph winds at 1515 CDT. A survey
team investigated the area this evening and found wind damage more
consistent of 50-60 mph winds. Several hundred Bradford Pears and
some sugar maples were knocked down in a 2 to 3 mile area around the
Mesonet station.  Much of the damage was around Elrod Road.  A corn
field next to the Mesonet had no visible damage to the corn crops.
A barn near the Mesonet had part of the barn folded back and there
were 2 hard wood trees knocked down at the farm.

We would like to thank Megan from the Kentucky Mesonet for all of
her help trying to to determine if the Mesonet wind was correct.
More scientific analysis will be undertaken over the next week. In
addition, we would like to sincerely thank Landon Hampton from
WxorNot Bowling Green for his help with the survey.

Note: The information in this statement is preliminary and subject to

storm data.
