Last night’s storms had a tornado around southern parts of Jefferson County, just outside Louisville. It was quickly heading east and apparently our town was in its path.
The tornado sirens went off, which is the first time I’ve heard them go off other than for the Wednesday morning test at 11.
It was quite something to sit there watching television and to hear it start up and realize that that probably wasn’t a test. However, we got nothing from the weather service and emergency warning texts for another half an hour. The sirens had gone off by then, because, I suppose the tornado had dissipated.
We were lucky. There is quite some damage in Louisville, so not everyone was. We did get hail and wind and there are many downed branches around here but nothing like the damage many people faced last night.
