EF-1 tornado hits Mayfield, 1 injured

Posted: Updated:

MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) -- Officials say strong winds spun up a small tornado in Mayfield.

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.

Only one injury was reported after the storm on Sunday, but property damage included a toppled scoreboard at War Memorial Stadium.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon told The Paducah Sun Lions Club Park was heavily damaged.

National Weather Service meteorologist Rick Shanklin said an EF-1 tornado struck near the Mills Manor nursing home with winds of 105 mph. No residents of the home were hurt, but cars were moved about in the parking lot and car windows blew out.

Graves County Emergency Management Director Jamey Locke said at least two businesses and about a dozen homes were damaged.

A homeowner was injured when the storm blew the roof of another building into his house.
