Horse Cave officials assessing damage, prepping clean-up

HORSE CAVE, Ky. – In light of the recent tornadoes, Horse Cave officials are now looking forward to the clean-up.

An E-F1 tornado impacted the Horse Cave area.

Warehouses across the area bore the brunt of the storm, including Kentucky Chrome Works, which house chrome and parts for the Corvette plant in Bowling Green.

Neighboring roofs and structures saw damage, as well.

Jimmy Martin, the Public Works Director for the City of Horse Cave, says with power lines still down, officials with the city and the Weather Service are still assessing the damage.

“We’ve got limbs and trees and lots and lots of debris,” he says.

As the community goes forward, Mayor Randall Curry is optimistic: “We’re just thankful. We lost quite a bit of property here in Horse Cave. Property can be replaced; we did not have any injuries. We did not have any death.”
