Road crews out working on downed trees

By Gale B. Cowan
Adair County Judge Executive

We have several reports of trees down across the county this morning. If you come upon a downed tree, please use extreme caution as some of these trees have power lines in them.

If you have a road blocked from a downed tree or power line, please call the Adair Co. Judge's Office at 270-384-4703 or Adair Co. 911 Center at 270-384-6464. Road crews are out and will get to them as quick as possible.

Too many strikes to count in Friday storm

2021-07-31 - Adair County, KY - Photo by George Kolbenschlag.

In the wee hours of July 30, 2021, a strong storm raged. There were just too many strikes to count as documented by George Kolbenschlag.

He writes, "This screen shot was taken from my cell phone about 4am Friday morning. The inner circle shows a 10 mile radius around Columbia over a 30 minute period.

"You can see some individual strikes on the periphery, but Columbia is blocked out by solid yellow because there were so many strikes they could not be indicated individually."
