As a line of strong thunderstorms moved through Marshall County last night there were numerous reports of downed trees and debris across roadways.

The National Weather Service in Paducah reported winds up to 60 miles per hour in the county.

A home at 7475 Mayfield Highway received extensive damage when a tree fell onto the roof. There were no reports of any injuries, however.

A second round of storms is possible today. A Hazardous Weather Outlook has been issued by the Storm Prediction Center for a slight risk of storms today and tonight in western Kentucky.

Scattered thunderstorms will develop ahead of an approaching cold front today. The storms will develop during the heat of the day and continue through the mid-afternoon hours. The storms could be capable of producing damaging wind gusts.

As the front nears by late afternoon and early evening more organized storm activity is possible and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
