CHARLESTON, W.V. (AP) -- Storm crews have confirmed an EF2 tornado struck in south central Kentucky where a woman died at her home.
The National Weather Service says preliminary information from ongoing damage surveys in Logan County indicate the tornado Saturday had maximum-sustained winds of 135 mph and a maximum width of 400 yards.
The Logan County Sheriff's Office says 79-year-old Dallas Jane Combs died after the tornado destroyed her Adairville home. Sheriff officials said Combs was inside the home when it collapsed on her. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities say Combs' husband was outside putting up plastic to keep rain out of the home when he was blown into the basement area. He suffered minor injuries.
CHARLESTON, W.V. (AP) -- Southwestern Michigan authorities say they found the body of a man in floodwaters.
Kalamazoo Public Safety Lt. David Thomas said the body was found floating in water Sunday on the city's east side. He said the medical examiner, detectives and others have been on the scene working to determine who the man was, what he was doing there and the cause of his death.
Thomas says the death doesn't appear suspicious.
Thomas adds the area saw significant flooding. Kalamazoo has been among the areas hard hit by flooding from last week's heavy rains and melting snow.
