ROYAL CENTER, Ind.–There was an EF-0 tornado that touched down in Cass County early Sunday.
The National Weather Service in Northern Indiana says it appeared around 2 am in the small town of Royal Center. It has a population of fewer than 1,000 people.
“It caused damage to some trees as well as a chimney on a house and it ripped off an enclosed porch from a residence in that area,” said Chris Roller, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Northern Indiana.
Roller says the tornado brought winds as high as 70 mph and had a path length of approximately one-half mile. No injuries were reported.
“A lot of the people in that area were able to receive the warning information during the overnight period as a result of being woken up by their NOAA weather radios,” said Roller.
Roller says you should get a NOAA weather radio if you don’t already have one.
Storm damage was also reported in and around Columbia City, Huntington, LaPorte, and Logansport.
