STATEWIDE–Several areas across Indiana received storm damage Wednesday night.

In Madison County, the Town of Summitville had to shut down briefly after the storm hit around 6 pm. The streets were reopened several hours later. Tom Ecker with the Madison County Emergency Management Agency said at least four homes had damaged windows and damage from trees. An RV was overturned and a mobile home was also destroyed. The roof was blown off Summitville Elementary School.

A building belonging to the Indiana American Water Company was also severely damaged. Rush County EMA Director Chuck Kemker believes a suspected tornado damaged the Posey Township Volunteer Fire Department roof, the roofs and siding of 6 to 8 other buildings in Arlington, and the roof of Arlington’s elementary school.

“The firehouse has taken the majority of the damage. Thankfully, the biggest thing is just property damage. There’s no loss of life,” said Indiana State Police Sergeant Scott Kegan.

No injuries have been reported.

“We’ll be working with our emergency managers. We’ll be assembling a survey team. They’ll look to see if that damage was from something tornadic or from straight-line winds. The biggest thing we saw Wednesday was damaging winds. We didn’t get much hail damage or heavy rain,” said Jason Puma, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

All of central and southern Indiana were under a tornado watch at some point Wednesday night. Tornado warnings were issued for Randolph, Delaware, and Rush counties.
