Severe Weather Awareness Week


  The National Weather Service in Paducah is warning the western Kentucky region that increased severe weather conditions often follow autumn temperatures. NWS meteorologist Rick Shanklin says tornado watches should be treated as warnings during the fall season because of the increased risk.


The National Weather Service and Kentucky Emergency Alert System is conducting a statewide tornado drill tomorrow morning.
