Remembering Masterson Station Tornado

Ten years ago an F-3 tornado ripped through the Masterson Station Subdivision in Lexington. It tore off roofs, crushed garages, and injured 5 people.

The National Weather Service rated the tornado as an F-3, the strongest tornado to hit Lexington in 67 years. It left a three mile path of damage. Winds from the tornado were estimated to be up to 170 miles per hour.

On Tuesday night a reflection and preparedness meeting will be held at the Leestown Campus of Bluegrass Community and Technical College in Building C. Officials say while there you will learn everything you need to know on how to keep your family safe during severe weather.
