On Friday, March 2, a strong cold front approached the Southern Indiana area. This system unleashed several powerful tornadoes.
Clark County Indiana RACES activated a weather net during the storm event, and was relaying weather reports to the National Weather Service in Louisville. Once the storm passed, we started getting reports of massive damage in the northern parts of Clark County, in the vicinities of Henryville and Marysville. Clark County Emergency Coordinator John Shean, N9TV, made contact with Les Kavanaugh, director of Clark County Emergency Management. Around 4 p.m., it was determined that the Clark County RACES team was needed to provide communications.
