Kentucky Tornado, Apr 1932


Many Areas In South Damaged But Destruction Light: Near Tornado In Kentucky

Bowling Green, Ky., April 25. (AP)- A windstorm that approached proportions of a tornado, accompanied by severe lightning, torrential rains and hail, swept through a half dozen or more southern Kentucky counties early today.

One man was injured in Warren county, another was shocked by lightning in Adair county and heavy damage was caused.

Roof and chimneys were blown off buildings in a wide area and power and light lines were crippled and several towns including Scottsville and Greensburg were in the darkness for several hours.

Industrial plants at Scottsville were closed for lack of power. Many tobacco beds were ruined by the heavy rains and Green river and its tributaries rose rapidly.
