No injuries were reported when the tornado struck about 5:30 p.m., Wells said.
Wells said the National Weather Service confirmed the tornado. The Larue County Herald News posted photographs on its Facebook page showing the damage. Wells said the tornado hit two barns and toppled trees, including one that fell on a home.
National Weather Service officials planned to conduct a survey in LaRue and Marion counties on Saturday, the weather service’s website said.
