Severe Weather Today in Dycusburg

According to WPSD TV meteorologists, there was an unconfirmed tornado sighting in Dycusburg today right before 7 p.m. Funnel clouds were spotted just across the river in Livingston County.

Residents of Dycusburg said the winds were howling and quite strong and loud. News reporters even urged parents to put helmets on the heads of their children if they had them.

Fortunately, the storm passed quickly, and the area got some much needed rain. This serves as a poignant reminder that Kentucky is very much a tornado-prone area.
