March 2 severe weather event - updated 3/9/12

A second round of severe thunderstorms in a matter of days impacted the WFO Paducah forecast area on Friday.  Numerous supercells developed over the region and rapidly moved to the east.  As opposed to Wednesday morning, our forecast area was the source region for the development of storms that went on to produce significant damaging tornadoes across the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys.  However, the storms did not depart our local area without inflicting more damage upon an already storm weathered community.

One of the counties within the WFO Paducah forecast area that received the most damage from Friday's severe weather outbreak was Posey County in southwest Indiana.  A team of NWS storm assessment surveyors was dispatched to Posey County on Saturday to investigate damage left behind by Friday's storm.  Provided below are their findings:
