Joplin Storm Does Damage in Kentucky

The remnants of the storm that devastated Joplin, Mo., on Sunday caused moderate damage in Calloway County early Monday morning and Monday afternoon. A Murray-based weather observer said the system that came through early Monday was a weakening straight-line wind storm left over from the same system that hit Missouri on Sunday. He said the highest winds were 48 mph. High winds knocked down trees and power lines.
