A tornado watch was lifted around 5 a.m. Thursday. It was in effect most of the day Wednesday for Nelson and more than 50 other Kentucky counties, according to the National Weather Service in Louisville. 

Thunderstorms are expected to continue through Thursday and early Thursday evening.

The Nelson County Emergency Management Agency warns outdoor weather sirens are intended to notify those who are outdoors only, and cannot be expected to alert or awaken individuals who are indoors.
