One killed in Logan Co. tornado, drowning in Simpson Co.

A woman was killed Saturday afternoon when a tornado struck her home on Dot Road in southern Logan County.

The tornado entered Logan County from Robertson County, Tennessee about 3:45 p.m. and destroyed the home and damaged other buildings and vehicles on the property.

Logan County Sheriff’s Sgt. Clint Wright spoke to WHOP News at the scene.

Sheriff’s Captain David Kitchens identified the victim as 79-year old Dallas Jane Combs of 901 Dot Road. He said her husband had been outside putting up plastic to keep rain out of the home and was blown into the basement area, but avoided injury.

Jeremy Rogers lives in the area and said it didn’t appear the tornado stayed on the ground for very long.

The victim’s daughter arrived at the home while emergency crews were on scene.

Just south of the state line in Robertson County, a home was severely damaged by the apparent twister where Keysburg-Adams Road becomes Hugh Gill Road. A Robertson County Sheriff’s Deputy said no one was injured and that everyone was accounted for at that location.

Elsewhere, the National Weather Service in Louisville reports one person drowned in a submerged vehicle near Flat Bridge on Kenny Perry Drive three miles southeast of Franklin in Simpson County.
