Tornado Watch Issued
Wed February 29, 2012
Severe Weather Moves into Region
Severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado warnings have been issued this morning for several counties in western and north central Kentucky. A fast moving storm system has entered the region, and some of the warnings issued earlier today have been canceled. However, the National Weather Service says this is a dangerous storm system. All but the easternmost counties of Kentucky have been cautioned about the possibility of tornadoes today. The initial warnings were issued in advance of a storm system blamed for one death in southwest Missouri. That storm also caused damage in the Ozark Mountains resort area town of Branson. A tornado watch is in effect across the region through the mid-day.
