Instead of commercial breaks, viewers of primetime television from Nashville Wednesay night got a steady stream of severe weather updates, as storms lashed southern Kentucky. There was an impressive quantity of lightning, torrential rain and high winds, and at least one possible tornado.

By 4 a.m. the storm system hit Marshall County, bringing up to two inches of rain by 10 a.m. The Highway Department reported numerous roads with trees down across them, but the Emergency Management Agency had no word of any injuries. A flash flood warning expired before the Tribune went to press, but a flash flood watch remains in effect until midnight Friday, and thunderstorms are in the forecast for the next few days.
