Central Indiana Battered by Significant Severe Weather Outbreak

Central Indiana Battered by Significant Severe Weather

April 2 will be a day that is long remembered by many residents of Central Indiana. While some Hoosiers were still cleaning up from the severe weather of this past Friday, yet another round of destructive weather took place. By all accounts, this was a significant outbreak of severe weather for the region.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis will be sending out numerous damage survey and assessment teams on Monday morning. With the extreme and widespread nature of the severe weather, it is likely that it will take several days before a full understanding of the damage to our area will be known.

Dozens of reports have already been received by the National Weather Service. These range from hail up to the size of nickels, wind gusts measured in excess of 80 mph, and numerous sightings of funnel clouds and tornadoes. Here is the most recent summary of storm reports.
