The National Weather Service in Wilmington OH has confirmed a
Microburst /Straight Line Wind Damage/ near Morning View in
Campbell County Kentucky on March 1 2017.

The damage began just to the north of Wolf Road where a barn was
80 percent destroyed by a strong gust of wind from the west. The
debris from the barn was thrown to the east for several hundred
yards. At a neighboring house, a large limb fell on a home.
Additionally a large tree, about a 100 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet
in diameter, was knocked down between the house and a detached
garage. The tree appeared to be partially diseased.

Farther east at the corner of Wolf Road and Clay Ridge, two barns
were damaged. The first barn had the roof partially peeled back
from west to east. The other barn was missed some siding and had
minor roof damage. This was the end of the damage path.

For reference...
A microburst is a convective downdraft with an affected outflow
area of less than 2 1/2 miles wide and peak winds lasting less
than 5 minutes. Microbursts may induce dangerous horizontal and
vertical wind shears...which can adversely affect aircraft
performance and cause property damage. Straight-line winds are
generally any wind that is not associated with rotation...used
mainly to differentiate them from tornadic winds.
