As a deputy with the Grant County Sheriff’s Department, Andy Reeves has seen his share of sights, but March 2 he saw something he’d never seen before.

Reeves, a resident of Ky. 491 in Crittenden, said he saw the funnel cloud pass his house.

“The sky was this ugly, weird color,” he said. “It turned green. Everything else had been cloudy and blue, but you could see this coming.”

Reeves said he and his wife went to their basement, into their lower level garage, inside their truck and waited.

Reeves said he’d been through another tornado when he was in fourth grade in Burliington.

“The tornado went right in front of our school and blew all the windows out,” he said.
