MUHLENBERG CO, KY (WFIE) - Representatives from the National Weather Service surveyed Muhlenberg County on Tuesday to determine if Monday's storm was a tornado.

They decided that the storm was in fact a small EF-1 tornado that reached a maximum width of 100 yards.

National Weather Service meteorologists say the path of the damage was a key indicator to determine the storm's severity.

The most serious damage in the area occurred at the Nolen Mobile Home Park where one home was completely overturned.

Only two minor injuries were reported from the storm.
