HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

We're finally seeing an end to the heavy rain and severe weather threat on Thursday. 

Between now and then, we'll have a good chance for more strong storms Wednesday afternoon.

A series of strong thunderstorms hit the Tri-State on Tuesday afternoon and evening.  According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, a tornado was spotted in Ohio County between Hartford and Beaver Dam late Tuesday afternoon.

Residents in Morton's Gap say they witnessed what they believe was a tornado around 9 Tuesday night. 

Officials have not confirmed that this system touched down, but locals say they spotted it right off the Pennyrile Parkway.

No damage has been reported, just tree limbs down.

One resident tells 14 News he actually saw rotation in the cloud.
