“Tornado at Falmouth, Ky. -- A terrible tornado passed over Falmouth on the Kentucky Central railroad on Friday evening. It was of so tempestuous and vilent a character as to cause the unroofing of several houses, among them being the Catholic church.” Evansville (Ind) Daily Journal, April 24, 1860
