Nine Tornadoes Confirmed in Kentucky

The National Weather Service has confirmed nine tornadoes touched down Wednesday across Kentucky. Most were classified as EF-2 in strength. That means they had estimated wind speeds of 111 to 135 mph. State and local officials also were working Thursday to get a preliminary assessment of the damage from the tornadoes and high winds. The storm system caused damages in several counties and some injuries, but no deaths.
