Tornado damages several homes near Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities are reporting damage to homes, downed power lines and uprooted trees as a tornado-producing storm moves across the Indianapolis area. National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Ryan says the tornado struck Tuesday afternoon just southwest of Indianapolis but was no longer on the ground. He says the Hendricks County Emergency Management Agency reported that at least three homes sustained extensive damage. The storm then headed into Indianapolis. City Public Safety Director Troy Riggs says emergency officials have received reports of damage to houses and trees with power lines down on the southwest side of the city. The storm crossed the north side of Indianapolis and headed toward its northern suburbs.
