Rough Winds Hit Bowling Green Last Night

Strong gusty winds have taken the state by storm, leaving damage behind in parts of the area. This was the scene this morning at a home in Warren County.

Bowling Green resident, Jessie Thompson’s truck was totaled when his carport came crashing down on it. Fortunately, his wife’s car was not damaged and they were able to back it out of the mangled mess.

The Thompson’s live on Belgium Court off Old Tram Road. He says the damage happened sometime during the long, stormy night.

“It was real strong, so loud all night. We live by an open field. I think it was the wind blowing across the field,” Thompson said. Thompson lined up a crane operator to remove the car port from his truck this afternoon.

There were no reports of power outages in this area from last night’s storm.
