Clean up to continue this morning from damaging tornado

Clean up will continue this morning for those hit by yesterday’s damaging storms.

At least 10 people were injured in the storm. Several homes and businesses were also leveled.

The National Weather Service has so far confirmed at least one tornado.

They say it started on Lewis Road, south of Fancy Farm, and went at least to the Marshall County line. 

That is where the National Weather Service had to stop its assessments last night because it got dark. The tornado may have gone farther. We will know more when the assessment picks up again this morning.

Rick Shanklin with the National Weather Service says preliminary storm assessments put the tornado at an EF 2. An EF 2 tornado has winds up to 135 miles per hour.
