Funerals held in Morgan County

MORGAN COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – Friends said an elderly couple likely died while holding hands.

90-year-old Wilmer Cecil and his wife 87-year-old Emma were both inside their mobile home when it was hit by a tornado.

Their home was ripped apart and they were thrown out. Hearts in the area just outside of West Liberty have been heavy ever since. Friday, they will be buried together.

In another part of the county an 18-year-old boy was the only person to survive in his mobile home.

The rest of his family members were killed.

Morgan County is working to make a memorial in honor of all the tornado victims.
