Survey summary:

Update... the Kentucky mesonet measured 92 mph winds at 1515 CDT.
After further investigation... it was determined that 92 mph is the
valid wind measurement at the Kentucky mesonet site (farm) where the
anemometer is located 10m above the ground. It is believed that the
highest winds with the storm stayed aloft and winds of 50-60 mph
reached the surface which is consistent with the damage found at
ground level described below.

A survey team investigated the area and found wind damage consistent
of 50-60 mph winds. Several hundred Bradford pears and some sugar
maples were knocked down in a 2 to 3 mile area around the mesonet
station. Much of the damage was around Elrod Road. A corn field
next to the mesonet had no visible damage to the corn crops. A barn
near the mesonet had part of the barn folded back and there were 2
hard wood trees knocked down at The Farm.

We would like to thank megan from the Kentucky mesonet for all of
her help trying to to determine if the mesonet wind was correct.
In addition, we would like to sincerely thank Landon Hampton from
wxornot Bowling Green for his help with the survey.

Note: the information in this statement is preliminary and subject to
change pending final review of the event and publication in NWS
storm data.
