Tornado hits Anderson County
A corridor of wind and rain classified as a tornado, swept through Lawrenceburg shortly past midnight Friday, leaving in it’s wake property damage expected to reach near $500,000. Only four people were reported injured.
The tornado, moving west to east through town, apparently broke up when it reached the Kentucky River. Damage was mainly in the downtown section, although the storm ripped property within a three-mile radius of Main Street.
