NWS confirms tornado EF-2 hit Boyle County Airport


JUNCTION CITY, Ky. (FOX 56/ WKYT) – The National Weather Service confirms an EF-2 . tornado Boyle County early Saturday morning, with winds of up to 122 mph.

The National Weather Service was at Danville-Boyle County Airport on Monday to survey the damage at Danville Boyle Airport.

The weather agency said the tornado caused extensive damage to the airport, destroying many of the planes and many of the hangers in which they were stored.

“So where we are now, you can see there are some cleaning crews around, trying to collect metal in the destroyed structures. And then, tomorrow, hopefully, we have an aircraft recovery company in Tennessee that will be here to try to tow the plane,” said airport manager Nick Barker.

When they first saw the damage, says Barker, they had a lot of questions about why this was happening, but then they realized what had happened in Mayfield, and western Kentucky, and they very grateful that no one was injured or killed.

Airport officials said a total of 13 planes were damaged or destroyed at the airport.

Damage is expected to run into the millions of dollars.
