KENTUCKY (FOX 56) – In terms of weather, 2022 certainly did not begin the way anyone had hoped for.
Although this set of storms was not as severe as those in December, a considerable amount of damage was still done.
The largest tornado, an EF-2, was recorded in Hopkinsville. Winds of 115 mph toppled trees and blew the roofs off buildings across downtown.
Gov. Beshear will be in Hopkinsville to assess the damage on Monday, Jan. 3.
The second-largest tornado occurred in Madison County. Winds of 110 mph blew through the area, doing similar damage as the one in Hopkinsville.
Five other tornadoes were reported in Taylor, Marion, Hart, Warren, and Barren counties.
Beshear’s office indicated there were no injuries or deaths in incidents as of now.
