LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- The National Weather Service toured hard hit Lawrence County, Ky., Wednesday to assess storm damage after receiving reports of a possible tornado.
Louisa was hit with winds of 80 miles per hour and nearly 4 inches of rain, according to WSAZ.com Meteorologist Chris Bailey.
Alan Reznek with the National Weather Service says one way you can tell whether a tornado hit or not is in the trees.
"It matters if trees twisted off or just pushed over," Reznek said. "These were just pushed over."
"Pushed over" means it was straight-line winds, not with rotation -- the way a tornado would have.
Reznek spent much of Wednesday taking pictures and notes on the damage he saw, to help next time a storm hits.
"It's important for us," he said. "We compare the cell that we saw in radar to the type of damage and that helps us in the future when we put out warnings."
Folks with damaged property should take pictures to show to the county or their insurance agent. Photographic evidence helps when trying to get reimbursements.
