Marion County, Ky. (WDRB) -- Severe weather all over Kentuckiana included two EF-0 tornadoes.
Tornadoes touched down in Marion County, Kentucky and Harrison County, Indiana. Homes and barns were destroyed and one child was injured.
Marion County resident Rick Shively says, "Before we could even get out of the living room, we heard the big kaboom."
Shively and his neighbors were shocked to see what Mother Nature did. A neighbor's trailer is now in pieces and surrounded by caution tape.
Inside the damaged trailer, people can see the U of L Cards flag, a child's bicycle, and a view of the kitchen with some of the cupboards open.
The National Weather Service says an EF-O tornado touched down for 100 yards, southwest of Bradfordsville with 80 to 85 mile per hour winds.
Shively says, "Then I see the transformer blow out in front of the trailer. That's when family that lived next store come running over, saying their trailer been blowed away."
Insulation is strewn all over the powerlines. He says his neighbor's child was hurt in the storm.
Shively says the child is eight years old and he, "had a laceration on his foot 4-5 inches long."
The Southern Sports Golf Driving Range in Okolona was also damaged in the overnight storms. Six telephone poles holding nets 60 feet tall snapped in half and fell over. They were put up to protect nearby homes from flying golf balls.
Tom Burns with Southern Sports Golf Driving Range says, "We've been in business for 25 years. This is the second time it's happened. It's devastating to us."
Each pole costs $15,000 and the business says it'll be at least five weeks before the range can reopen.
Back in Marion County, as the rain continues to come down a family's trailer, neighbors are thankful the storm wasn't worse.
Shively says, "I think the Lord was watching over 'em this morning. Count their blessings that they got out of it."
The National Weather Service confirmed a separate EF-0 tornado touched down near Elizabeth, in Harrison County Indiana. An EF-1 tornado touched down three miles north of West Baden Springs, in Orange County, Indiana. Look for separate stories on wdrb.com to describe damage in those locations.
