A second round of severe thunderstorms and tornados swept through the southern United States on Friday, affecting Kentucky and the Lake Cumberland Area for the second time in three days. The most severe weather that affected Russell and surrounding counties began in Metcalfe County Friday evening and continued to intensify as it moved into Adair, Russell, southern Casey and then into Pulaski County. A funnel cloud was spotted in northern Russell Springs, a touchdown has yet to be confirmed. No damage has been reported in Russell County, however, rescue and relief efforts are underway across the state and southern United States.
