2 Tornaodes Strike Northern Indiana.

Carroll and Miami counties in northern Indiana saw severe weather overnight. Around 1am a severe storm produced a tornado in Carroll county destroying several barns and at least one home. A second tornado ripped through parts of Miami county near the same time. No reports of injuries have been made.

Locally, there was no severe weather but a Tornado watch was issued for Rush, Fayette, and Union counties to our north until 5am Sunday. The watch was discontinued early though because the storms had weakened significantly. Around 6:30 am Sunday, a line of storms moved through the area, but only heavy rain and some brief gusts of wind were encountered. Rainfall totals from this morning's storm was 0.42". The frontal passage which brought the storms has certainly brought in a very pleasant air mass. At 3pm, the temperature out is just 72F (22C) with very low humidity and a northwesterly breeze of 10-20mph. I wish the entire summer were like today, but that's wishful thinking.
