(WEHT) – Strong winds swept through the Tri-State on Thursday evening, but it wasn’t until the daylight hours the true extent of the damage was revealed.
Mount Carmel was one of the hardest hit areas from Thursday night’s storms.
New video from storm chaser John Humphress shows debris scattered by wind and the roof ripped off the top of a building. The National Weather Service out of Paducah plans to be in Mount Carmel on Friday surveying the damage. They will determine if the storm was a tornado or a straight line wind event.
The Assistant Police Chief of Mount Carmel says no one was injured.
In Keensburg, people say the storms knocked out power, downed trees and caused damage to homes and other buildings. But most of all, they’re thankful everyone made it through safely. In Gibson County, one resident of Buckskin says a tree landed on his truck.
