April 10, 2009: Severe weather outbreak strikes our region…

  It has been a long 24 hours.  Numerous severe thunderstorms struck southeast MO, South IL, West KY, West TN (and many Aciclovir without prescription other areas).  McCracken County had winds of 80+ mph and Massac County did as well.  Lot of damage to structures.

  Numerous counties had hailstorms.  We had several hailstorms in McCracken County.  Graves County had a large supercell with a hook echo pass south of Mayfield.  A wall cloud was reported.

  Rough 24 hours.  Glad it is over.

  Spent a lot of time over the last few days at the farm. Jason and Jess Darnall helped put weather instruments up and trench some ditches.  Looks like everything is moving along!
