HOPKINS COUNTY, KY (3/3/12)—A strong line of destructive severe weather, which many have said produced tornadoes across different portions of Hopkins County, left several in the dark without power between yesterday afternoon and early this morning, March 3rd. What’s more, hard, straight-line winds damaged a variety of local structures, including Madisonville, KY’s own North Hopkins High School (MNHHS) and a plethora of businesses and residences.

While power was restored to Madisonville’s north side around 2:30AM this morning, SurfKY News has received additional photos of the town’s northern portion while it was still blanketed in a very familiar, “ice-storm-like” darkness. The photos, some of which were taken by SurfKY News reporters, include images of the Regional Medical Center and Trover Clinic, both of which were only partially functional until early this morning (see main photo).

At this time, clean-up of area businesses and MNHHS remains underway.

Additional photos include damage done to area businesses, such as Toyota-Hudson and Lowe’s, as well as images of rain-wrapped funnel clouds spotted near the Henderson, KY area, a rainbow spotted over Madisonville following the storm, damaged power lines, and large hail resulting from the powerful weather system. Many of the photos shown were taken by Madisonville resident and local storm-chaser, Casey Piscitelli. Several of the photos were also submitted by Madisonville resident, Jessica Dockrey.
