A powerful storm moved through parts of northern Calloway County early Thursday afternoon, generating a possible downburst near Kirksey that damaged more than 20 structures, leveled about 50 trees, and brought down several power lines.
Kirksey residents have regained their own post office. This time the post office is at a popular gathering spot in the small farming community. The Kirksey Store is now a new Village Post Office, with the new mailboxes located in the back of the store. The U.S. Postal Service closed its old office in rural Calloway County last April.
A fire has fully engulfed a structure on Norsworthy road near Kirksey, Kentucky. The Calloway County Sheriff’s office received a call about the fire around 1:30 this afternoon. The Fire and Rescue squad is on the scene. No further reports including any injuries are available.
