LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Cleanup efforts got underway in Madison County Sunday after an EF 1 tornado hit the area Saturday.
The 110 miles per hour winds left behind significant damage, with the entire community cleaning up Sunday.
It was a lot for Michael Sparks to take in, he’s lived in the area for 15 years and said it was the worst storm he’s experienced in the county.
“I mean it happened so fast. We were on the porch when all this was going on and I told my boy that we need to go in the house now. Lord had his hand on us. He was here watching over us,” said Sparks.
Madison County Emergency Management said no injuries were reported and said it was all hands on deck to get power restored quickly and roadways cleared.
“It is always a challenge whenever you see something that impacts your community. We never want bad things to happen but if they do we want to make sure that we’re ready to support our community and help in any way we can,” said Jennifer Hitch, Deputy Director, Madison County Emergency Management Agency.
If you still need help with cleanup or other resources, you’re asked to contact the Madison County Emergency Management Office.
