Severe thunderstorms slammed the county last night with a possible touchdown of a tornado in the Grassland area, just north of Brownsville. Pat Prunty, Edmonson County Emergency Management Director said there are several reports of downed trees and limbs, and one barn was knocked down. Luckily, there have been no reported injuries.
"Right now, we can't tell for sure if a tornado actually touched down," Prunty said. "We're meeting with the National Weather Service today (Sunday, April 26th) to investigate and survey the weather damage."
We're gathering more info and photos and will have an update later today.
