On Saturday morning, Merle Nickell did what he does most mornings: He took a walk near Old Mill Park. Except things had changed radically since his last walk. The town was barely recognizable after a storm that residents called a tornado struck Friday rearranging the face of the Morgan County seat. "There's so much destruction, it's just incomprehensible to me," said Nickell, 85. Four people — three in the county and one in West Liberty — died as a result of the storm, Kentucky State Police Lt. David Jude said Saturday.
