Land Between the Lakes - LBLDear Editor,

As many know, Land Between the Lakes has experienced widespread wind and water damage.

It has been confirmed that the same storm that traveled through Marshall County on Wednesday, July 6th also crossed Land Between the Lakes.

It contained a tornado which touched down near Cravens Bay Campground, traveling along the ground for approximately a quarter mile before it went across Lake Barkley into Trigg County. The high winds impacted trees, open lands and other resources along its path.
