10/9 - 10:30pm - Severe Weather Video, Reports

Casey County, Kentucky took the brunt of the severe weather today as an EF-2 tornado touched down and caused quite a bit of damage across the area. The two-minute long tornado got up to 1/8 mile wide and traveled a mile and a half. An EF-0 tornado was also confirmed today in Breckinridge County, Kentucky.

Most of the damage today around the South was caused by straight line winds, which even caused a fatality in Washington County, Mississippi. Here are today's severe weather reports from the SPC:

Tomorrow's football game at MSU against Houston looks pretty rainy at this time, but luckily it will clear out later in the afternoon. Keep those rain coats handy!
