1 dead after storm rolls through Prestonsburg


PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (WOWK) — One person is dead after a storm rolled through Prestonsburg, Kentucky this afternoon. The storm hit Prestonsburg at around 1 PM on Wednesday, May 29th, 2019.

The Floyd County Coroner has confirmed that the person was killed due to the storm. In photos from a WOWK 13 News viewer, the roof of a building can be seen in the street of Prestonsburg. At the time the National Weather Service had issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Floyd County, and that warning has since expired. That line of storms caused Severe Thunderstorm Warnings to be issued across much of Eastern Kentucky.

WOWK 13 News Reporter Hannah Goetz is headed to the scene. This is a developing story, and we will continue to update it on WOWKTV.com, the WOWK 13 News App, and on 13 News on-air.
