Narrative:  A tornado, which possessed a "wrenching, spiral motion" according to witnesses and was described in the newspaper as "whirling and tossing about like a monster in pain" moved northeast through the southeast part of Louisville, damaging over a hundred buildings.  A warehouse containing five hundred barrels of whiskey was destroyed.  The tornado touched down near the intersection of Saint James Court and Magnolia Avenue, where it tore down several fences in Central Park.  The first home damaged was on Fourth Street opposite the park.  Eagle Park (primarily used for baseball) was damaged between Third and Fourth streets and Ormsby and Park avenues, and a home was damaged on Third Street opposite the park.  Considerable damage was done in what was then known as Brownstown, and today is Old Louisville.  Many roofs were removed there, and damage was reported at the corner of First and Ormsby.  The tornado then intensified and produced some of its worst damage at Preston Street and Mechanic Street (Mechanic Street was today's Saint Catherine and Mary streets).  Houses were unroofed at the intersection of Preston and Mechanic, a small brick slaughterhouse on Mechanic was demolished, and a two and a half story brick house on Mechanic was badly damaged.  Continuing to the northeast, a home was damaged at the corner of Kentucky and Shelby streets and brick cottages on Kentucky near Shelby were wrecked.  A roof was removed on Mary Street near Swan Street, and some light damage was done along Fischer Avenue, though those damages were probably from straight-line winds.  The tornado advanced to the northeast.  Significant damage occurred on Broadway near Cave Hill Cemetery.  The twister then moved into the cemetery and inflicted terrible damage to trees and monuments.  The arch over the northern gateway was blown over.  The tornado lifted in the Irish Hill neighborhood.  Click here for a detailed map of the approximate path of the center of the tornado.

Path length: 6 miles
Time:  2:00am
Grazulis Narrative:  Tornado moved from "Husto" to "Kinney Station".  Two people were killed in one rural building.  Most of the path was through dense forest.  We at the NWS have been unable to find Husto or Kinney Station on any map.  If you know where these places are or were, please let us know!
NWS Notes:  Despite the amount of specific information presented here, we are still unable to map this tornado.  While Lexington newspapers listed the many farms that were struck by the tornado (or its attendant straight-line winds), no road names and few references to nearby towns were given.  Also, the NWS has not been able to find any references to "Husto" or "Kinney Station" so far.  Lexington newspapers stated that the "cyclone did great damage," including unroofing J. L. Taylor's clothing store across the street from the courthouse in Paris.  Warehouses were unroofed along Stoner's Creek.  G. W. Bedford's barn was blown down, and an old stone house on the Clay Farm was destroyed, killing two people inside the house (Maria Johnson and a young boy).  The Morris Gass Farm also received damage.  The cyclone moved from south to north "over the lower edge" of Paris.  Several buildings were unroofed.  The warehouse of Mr. Tarr was completely destroyed.  "Several church spires were bent, while the dome on the courthouse rocked to and fro at an alarming rate.  The track of the cyclone was very narrow."  It appears that tornadoes may have also struck Franklin, Anderson, and Fayette Counties on this day.

Path width:  300 yards
Path length:  45 miles (probably a family of tornadoes)
Time:  4:00pm
Notes:  A family of tornadoes and downbursts moved from six miles west of Bowling Green to beyond Munfordville.  Homes were wrecked near Kuykendall's Store west of Bowling Green and in Davenport on Barren River Pike.  Three houses and four barns were blown into the Barren River at Thomas Landing, injuring ten people.  A car was blown off the road, over a fence, and into a field.  The vehicle landed on its tires and the driver survived, despite the top half of the car getting sheared off.  Additional damage occurred in the Richardsville area.  In Edmonson County, barns and a hotel were torn apart near Mammoth Cave National Park, along with the home of a cave tour guide.  In Hart County the tornado and its attendant straight-line winds mowed down a path five miles wide.  Three people were injured as houses were unroofed and barns destroyed.  Canmer and Woodsonville were the hardest struck districts.  Seven barns were blown down near Munfordville.

Path length:  45 miles (probably a family of skipping tornadoes)
Time:  5:30pm
Narrative:  A complex series of tornadoes and downbursts produced over $350,000 damage in a nine-county area of central Kentucky.  The destruction of forty barns in Hart County and damage to 57 homes in Taylor County was likely from straight-line downburst winds.  The likelihood of tornado involvement seemed to begin near Gilpin, continued east, passing south of Eubank, and ending in northern Laurel County.  One person died in a home near Gilpin.  A mother and four children died in one home on the Laurel County side of the Rockcastle River, fifteen miles northwest of London.  Their home, which was destroyed, caught fire and only one child could be rescued.  Most of the injuries were in the Gilpin-Mount Olive area.

Time:  5:45am
Notes:  Wind damage occurred in a five mile wide swath from Howe Valley to three miles east of Elizabethtown.  Within this area of high winds, an F3 tornado swept from about two miles northwest of Cecelia to three miles east of Elizabethtown.  The worst of the tornado took place at its inception on Bethlehem Academy Road, where a barn was destroyed killing a woman inside.  A nearby house was lifted bodily from its foundation, power lines were torn down, and a white leghorn rooster was stripped of its feathers.  Trees were blown down in Saint John.  Proceeding further to the east, power lines were downed on Old Cecilia Road and a barn was destroyed on Saint John Road three miles west of Elizabethtown.  The tornado then weakened considerably, and the only significant damage done in Elizabethtown was power lines getting ripped down on North Dixie Highway.  Leaving town, the tornado restrengthened and demolished a barn and a nearby house, and unroofed several homes three miles from Elizabethtown on US 62, where the twister grew to a quarter mile wide.  However it dissipated soon thereafter.  Straight-line winds tore down trees and power poles and damaged barns at Howe Valley, Franklin Cross Roads, Cecilia, Patterson, Tabb (four miles west of Elizabethtown on US 62), Glendale, Sonora, and on Springfield Road three miles east of Elizabethtown.

Notes:  A strong thunderstorm passed through Georgetown in the pre-dawn hours.  Wind damage was spread across about a six mile wide swath south through east of town, with a small tornado embedded within.  The actual tornado probably touched down just west of Lexington Road about 3/4 of a mile northwest of the Fayette County line.  It traveled to the northeast across Lemons Mill Road and then to the north-northeast along Crumbaugh Road, across Paris Pike, and up Old Oxford Road, dissipating before reaching Cynthiana Road.  The first places hit were the Anderson Farm about three miles south of Georgetown, where a cabin lost its roof, the Showalters Farm just south of there, and Julia Marcum's place next door to the Showalters.  Julia's barn's roof was blown into Georgetown Cemetery.  Then the barn of T. P. Pickett was unroofed on Lemons Mill Road.  On Lemons Mill Pike the John Drake Farm and the home of Dr. S. S. Amerson were hit.  Turning more towards the north, the roof of a barn on Crumbaugh Road owned by C. A. Thornton was blown off.  The Earl Watson farm was damaged as the tornado crossed Paris Pike.  The worst damage of the event occurred just before the tornado dissipated, when it removed the roof and broke the windows of a home owned by Lewis Oliver on Old Oxford Road.  The house was built in 1777 (this project wonders if it was the Charles Whitaker House).  After then damaging the Hixson Farm, the twister dissipated.  One resident on Oxford Pike said, "The noise of the twister was worse than the noise of a train passing near you."  Trees were uprooted all along the tornado's path.  Nearby straight-line wind damage in Georgetown was comparatively light.  A barn was slightly damaged in the South Hudson neighborhood, a barn was damaged on Fountain Avenue, and the home of Sheriff Deputy Murphy on Clayton Avenue lost its two chimneys and suffered other roof damage as well.
Noted discrepancies:  SPC and NCDC call this an F1, Grazulis calls it an F2.  SPC gives a path length of 1/10 of a mile, NCDC provides no length, and Grazulis gives a length of 5 miles.  SPC gives a width of 10 yards, NCDC provides no width, and Grazulis gives 100 yards.  Grazulis' path length and width are probably more correct.

Notes:  Tornado touched down on the Charles Caldwell Farm 3.5 miles southwest of Danville on Lebanon Road.  The tornado moved northeast into Danville, lifting shortly after causing damage at 435 Frye's Lane south of downtown.  A dozen homes lost their roofs, and about a million dollars (1957) in damage was done.   A tobacco warehouse was demolished on the southwest side of town.  Along the tornado's path, plate-glass windows, signs, trees, and smaller buildings were smashed.
Noted discrepancies:  NCDC and SPC storm databases place a tornado in Metcalfe County at this time, and nothing in Boyle County.  Storm Data shows the tornado in Boyle County, and nothing in Metcalfe County.   Further research suggests that the Boyle County tornado did indeed happen as described above.   In Metcalfe County, damage reported at Center and Sulphur Well appears to be from straight-line winds.  The Metcalfe County damage consisted of house and barn damage, but was spread across an area three miles wide.  Lexington Weather Bureau meteorologist Dix Newtown felt it was straight-line wind damage at the time.  Some witnesses thought there might have been a small tornado, but no credible eye-witness accounts of a visible funnel were received.  On this date a large tornado outbreak struck from Kentucky south to the Gulf States, so it's certainly within the realm of possibility that a small tornado, perhaps embedded in straight-line winds, struck somewhere in Metcalfe County.  However, going on the research done by this project up to this point,  it has been determined that there was a small tornado in Boyle County, but no tornado in Metcalfe County.  If you have information you'd like to share about either storm, please let us know.

Noted discrepancies:  SPC gives a path length of 1/10 of a mile...NCDC gives nothing.  SPC gives a path width of 10 yards, NCDC gives nothing.  The lack of an F-scale is frustrating.  Storm Data mentions that the tornado was small and the worst damage seems to have been the destruction of a barn.  It also apparently hit a cemetery and "toppled 50 tombstones".  It struck on IN 56 midway between Paoli and Millersburg.  Would guess it was an F1, but more research is needed to get a better idea of this tornado's f-scale.

Notes:  Moved east from east of Hiseville to Savoyard and Sulphur Well.  A trailer was demolished east of Savoyard, in which a woman named Glinda Jeffries was killed.  Her body was carried about 100 yards.  Her husband was injured.  Their 2-year-old son remained unhurt.
Personal account from Brent Jeffries, cousin of Ronnie Jeffries, who was Glinda's husband:  Tee Jeffries, Ronnie's father, went to the trailer to tell them that a bad storm was coming up and asked if they wanted to go to his house. Tee's house was right beside Ronnie's trailer. Ronnie said, "No we are just going to go to bed."  So Tee started walking back to his house. Just as soon as Tee got on his car porch the tornado hit and sucked him up against the wall of his house. It threw Ronnie and Timmy, Ronnie's only son, into a mud puddle with just a few scratches. They found Glinda up in trees about 100 yards in front of her trailer. Tee climbed the tree and got her out. He said it felt like every bone in her body was broken but, she was still alive. They rushed her to T J Samson Community Hospital in Glasgow but, she died in Tee's arms about half a mile from the hospital. I was just 4 years old at the time but, I remember the wind blowing hard all that day. After the tornado hit my parents woke me up and we drove up there just about a mile away.
Noted discrepancies:  SPC and NCDC give a path length of 5 miles, Grazulis and Storm Data give 6 miles (which appears more accurate).  SPC gives a path width of 10 yards, NCDC 30 yards, Grazulis gives nothing.  SPC/NCDC start this tornado at Savoyard in Metcalfe County...Grazulis and Storm Data start it "east of Hiseville" with Grazulis starting it in Barren County but Storm Data only mentioning Metcalfe County (Hiseville is three miles inside Barren County) on KY 314.  In subsequent research, no evidence has been found of damage in Barren County, so will only include Metcalfe County at this time.

Grazulis narrative:  Moved northeast from west of Lawrenceburg to the edge of town.  A trailer was demolished, and the occupants were severely injured.  A brick building was unroofed and had a wall blown down.  Many buildings had roof or other damage.
Noted discrepancies:  SPC, NCDC, and Storm Data give a path length of 3 miles, Grazulis gives 6 miles.  SPC gives a path width of 10 yards, NCDC 30 yards, Storm Data 500 yards, Grazulis nothing.   Grazulis times this tornado one hour later (12:05am November 27)...could be a time zone issue here (either with Grazulis or the NWS).
Notes:  Storm Data says this tornado touched down initially west of Lawrenceburg and moved into the downtown section of that city.  The storm then lifted but came back down at the eastern edge of town.  According to news accounts, damage was heavy in Lawrenceburg, especially in a three-block wide swath through downtown.  The Anderson County courthouse lost some of its roof.

Notes:  Hard to believe and F3 tornado with a path length and width as small as what SPC gives.  Also hard to believe the NWS would give it an F3 rating and Grazulis would only give it an F1 or less.  Something odd here.  The only damage described in Storm Data done directly by the tornado is the destruction of a concrete poultry house south of Dubois on IN 162 (which also sounds weird since IN 162 is not in close proximity to Dubois and is nowhere near the lat/lon given by SPC/NCDC).  Additional research necessary!

Time:  10:25pm
Notes:  This tornado likely touched down in eastern Muhlenberg County and traveled roughly northward through western Ohio County, including the Echols, Rockport, and Hartford areas, and into far eastern Daviess County around Whitesburg.  In the Rockport and Echols area the tornado was up to a quarter mile wide.  It destroyed a dozen houses and half a dozen mobile homes, damaged 40 other houses and several barns to some degree, and injured eleven people.  In Hartford two children were hospitalized when their trailer was overturned.  The tornado did its worst in Whitesville in Daviess County, damaging much of the town.
Noted discrepancies:  SPC lists Ohio and Daviess counties...NCDC lists only Ohio County...Grazulis lists Muhlenberg and Ohio counties.  SPC/NCDC lat/lon list this tornado as touching down in Daviess County, and provide no liftoff lat/lon.  Grazulis has the tornado starting in Muhlenberg County east of Greenville and he lifts it at Hartford in Ohio County (nowhere near the SPC/NCDC lat/lon).  SPC and NCDC list no injuries, Grazulis and Storm Data list 18.  SPC gives a path length of 1/10 of a mile (obviously wrong), NCDC gives nothing, and Grazulis gives 20 miles.  SPC gives a path width of 10 yards, NCDC and Grazulis give nothing.  Storm Data mentions tornado-like damage at Whitesville in Daviess County.

Notes: This small tornado was embedded in a fast moving squall line that raced east at 55 mph.  The twister first touched down at a home on U.S. Highway 62 just west of Goshen Church Road, tearing off shingles and uprooting a tree.  It moved east-southeast, uprooting and snapping trees near the intersection of Hwy 62 and Goshen Church Rd, along with damaging some small outbuildings.  It next downed a tree on Mine Fork Road that fell between a home and outbuilding, damaging both structures and causing a minor head injury to the occupant of the shed. Continuing over open fields, it next hit several residences along Hill, Mulberry, and South Mulberry streets before crossing U.S. Highway 231 and causing minor roof damage to the Post Office. The greatest damage occurred in this two block area, where up to a dozen outbuildings were destroyed or heavily damaged, and sections of roofing were lifted off homes and garages.  Fences in the neighborhood were blown in a cyclonic pattern, providing evidence of the tight rotation pattern of the storm.  After crossing Hwy 231, the tornado damaged several large warehouses, scattering wood and sheet metal debris.  Along Bruce School Road, a chain link fence was flattened, and insulation was sucked out of the damaged roof of a two story home, then spattered along the east side of the home and adjacent vehicles. Another large tree was uprooted in this yard before the tornado lifted.  Sheet metal and shingles were lifted into trees along the route of the storm.

Notes: This tree-top level tornado did all of its damage 20 to 30 feet above ground. Never more than 50 yards wide, the first evidence of the tornado touching down was one mile south of the water tower on Thomas Lane, where it downed several large branches that blocked the road. Moving northeast over forested land, the next evidence was more tree trunks and branches snapped on Poplar Grove Rd just north of the intersection with Hilldale Rd. The tornado then continued to skip northeast, snapping branches and trunks to the west of Frank Luttrell Rd, before crossing the road and causing minor roof damage to the metal roof of a barn and snapping more tree limbs a third of a mile southeast of North Hancock Elementary School. The tornado dropped small branches and leaves along its path as it continued northeast. The last major tree damage was observed around a home on Adair Rd, where trees were uprooted and trunks snapped in a cyclonic pattern around the home. The only damage to the home, however, was minor roof damage from a branch falling on it. The storm then crossed Adair Rd, lifting somewhere in a wooded area west of a large pond near Beauchamp Lane, where residents witnessed its dissipation.

Notes: This brief, skipping tornado touched down initially as an EF0 near the east end of Labrador Way in a subdivision 1.5 miles south of Rineyville Elementary School. It did minor roof damage to two homes, tossed a trampoline into a neighboring home, causing siding damage, and pushed a large travel trailer onto a minivan, heavily damaging both. Mud was spattered onto the north-facing front of the home, where a porch column support was also moved slightly. From here it travelled east-northeast, snapping tree limbs as it skipped over mainly open pastureland until it reached Thomas Road. On the west side of Thomas Road, the tornado reached its greatest intensity and size, with winds of 100 mph. Here it damaged four outbuildings, completely destroying two - the largest being a 30 x 50 structure. The debris pattern from the four outbuildings and nearby trees with snapped trunks and limbs showed clear cyclonic rotation. Metal roofing and siding material were scattered nearly a quarter of a mile to the east-northeast, with some of it lofted into the trees of a heavily wooded area. Other building debris from the largest structure was blown to the northwest, and the south and east-facing walls of a number of structures were spattered with leaves and other ground-based vegetation. Three east-facing garage doors of one of the outbuildings were blown in, and damage was sustained to the vehicles in the driveway from downed tree limbs. Three homes in the area sustained roof and siding damage, including a 2x4 from one of the outbuildings blown through an exterior wall. The tornado became elevated as it continued east-northeast from Thomas Road, snapping a few tree limbs in a wooded area before briefly touching down one last time on Rineyville Road, where it littered the highway with tree limbs and tore the front porch off a home, vaulting the roof over the house into the back yard. Security cameras from a business next door captured the damage occurring as a wall of wind and water that occurred in less than half a minute. No further damage occurred to the east of this location as the tornado dissipated.

Notes: This very small tornado touched down on top of an older wooden barn on KY 289 just south of the intersection with US 68. It flattened the structure, collapsing it to the southeast, while the metal roofing was distributed in a circulating pattern around it - from southeast to northeast to northwest, with the bulk being to the
northeast. A 3-legged TV tower next to the adjacent home was crumpled to the north-northeast. Other than mud spattering from the south-southwest on the back corner of the brick one-story home, no other evidence of wind was observed, as no shingles were damaged. The tornado immediately lifted over the home and nearby trees, then set back down in a subdivision on the west side of New Calvary Road, about a mile east where several small tree trunks were snapped, but no apparent structural damage occurred. The tiny twister then continued to the northeast, causing other minor tree damage to the south of Probus Lane.

Notes: This skipping tornado first touched down along Campbellsville Rd near the community of Cane Valley where it downed power lines as it snapped tree limbs and uprooted several large trees. Moving eastward over open fields, it tore most of the roof off a barn at the end of Doug White Road, plastering insulation from the barn onto the northeast side of the adjacent home. To the north of the barn and home, it tossed a 1500 lb. hay roll southeast over a fence. From here, the tornado raced east-northeast over more fields, where it snapped the tops off a few trees before it hit the next farm, at Milky Way Lane on Mt. Carmel Road. Here it destroyed one large outbuilding and tore much of the roof off another in addition to destroying two small grain hoppers. Flying debris damaged at least two other buildings and vehicles, with roofing debris scattered a quarter of a mile to the northeast. Across the road from these buildings, the tornado tore the roof off and partially collapsed the wall of another large outbuilding. Flying debris from this building damaged another outbuilding, while columns on the southwest-facing front porch of the farm home were blown out as the porch roof was briefly elevated. The tornado continued eastward, snapping the trunks of several large trees along Butler Creek and damaging carports and a metal outbuilding along Holmes Bend Rd and Turkey Trace. Again moving over open land, the final two buildings damaged were metal outbuildings on Willis Rd and near the intersection of West Egypt Rd and Knifley Rd. It also toppled the sign of the Green River Bait and Grocery before lifting as it crossed Knifley Rd.
