Second tornado confirmed in Wilson County
Jan 31, 2013 5:40 pm
A second tornado touched down in Wilson County on Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
A confirmed EF-1 tornado touched down north of Lebanon near the intersection of Thomas Road and Canoe Branch Road and continued through to the southern tip of Trousdale County near U.S. 231.
“I suspected it, because when we draw out the damaged area from Mt. Juliet up to that point, it’s a straight line,” said Capt. Steve Spencer of the Wilson Emergency Management Agency. “What that indicates is that the EF-2 tornado that did so much damage in Mt. Juliet is part of that same cell, so basically the EF-2 weakened some, and when it went into that area it was an EF-1 instead of the EF-2."
