Overview

 
A strong storm system moved from the Midwest into the lower Ohio Valley on April 8, 2020. Isolated storms developed during the afternoon across portions of southern Indiana and central Kentucky and dropped large hail and produced damaging winds. Later that evening, a line of severe thunderstorms moved in from the northwest and produced widespread damaging winds and small hail. An EF-1 tornado spun up along the front edge of the line of severe storms and tracked for several miles across Nelson County. Storms pushed east of the region during the early morning hours of April 9, 2020. Image
