Storms move in, cause damage

October 26, 2010

The strong line of storms that triggered tornado warnings throughout central Indiana this morning has passed, leaving behind a trail of destruction. Duke Energy reported more than 40,000 power outages across central and southern Indiana, and Indianapolis Power & Light reported nearly 16,000 in the dark. In Kokomo, the storm knocked over a house. A firefighter and his wife were inside at the time, but weren’t injured. Rescuers also spent time this morning getting a mother and her young child out of a house after a tree fell on it in Madison County. In Marion County, most of the damage is from tree limbs blowing onto vehicles or roadways. A high-wind warning is in effect until 8 p.m. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
