Day. Thunderstorms produced wind gusts to 82 mph at Clearwater KS, eight
inches of rain in four hours at Menno SD, and three inches of rain in just
fifteen minutes at Austin KY. Morning thunderstorms drenched Oneonta AL
with 8.6 inches of rain, their greatest 24 hour total in thirty years of

...2001...
A tornado ripped through portions of Pulaski and Laurel counties last 
year. The twister first touched down northwest of downtown Somerset...and 
skipped east southeast for a little over one hour before lifting back into its 
parent thunderstorm over southern Laurel county. The tornado path was 
approximately 24 miles...and damaged buildings and numerous trees. The northern 
Pulaski middle school lost part of its roof...and tornadic winds broke water 
pipes which produced some flooding inside the building. Final damage estimates 
from this tornado were in excess of 350 thousand dollars...with 68 homes damaged 
and two mobile homes destroyed. (NWS Jackson KY Office)
