Been watching the Tornado reports this morning and saw the devastation and the death projections in KY, but hope our good friends in Union City and surrounding were spared. Looked it up and Union City is only 35 miles from and appears to be in the track to Mayfield Ky one of the areas I heard prominently mentioned. I have been close to less powerful ones but spared in the past.

A lot of damage in Obion and Lake county. Reports of a few confirmed deaths as well as others trapped in homes. Many others have lost everything, but that can be replaced. We are south of all the major damage, but it’s a sad situation for many in the area.
3 deaths near Reel Foot lake town of Samburg.

Spent alot of time in the area my dad lives in Paducah. Both of those towns are really close. UC, Mayfield, & Fulton are basically right on the state line

Over 100 confirmed dead. Bowling Green and Mayfield got hit very hard. I am North of Louisville and we only have some minor wind damage. The tornado ripped through between Bowling Green and Owensboro area. Prayers for everyone.

There were concerns, as we were in the center on the radar map, with reports of a funnel headed this way. Impacts from hail got noisy from the size, but not too intense. There wasn't a lot of it, and the air was strangely calm, not violent. As far as I know, folks here were fortunate.
