Damage summary for last night's storms

Another round of severe thunderstorms occurred Sunday night, producing scattered reports of wind damage. Pockets of major wind damage and a few possible tornadoes occurred in southern Illinois and southwest Indiana. National Weather Service damage survey teams will investigate areas of Gibson and Pike Counties in Indiana and Wayne County, Illinois. Damage in those areas consisted of moderate to severe damage to structures, particularly near Orchardville, IL and Owensville and Oakland City, IN. Elsewhere, some isolated damage to trees and weak structures such as barns and trailers occurred in western Kentucky and southeast Missouri. The damage was the result of a line of thunderstorms that contained embedded bowing line segments.

A listing of preliminary storm reports appears below the radar images.

Below are two radar images from the Evansville/Owensville radar of a possible tornado as it crossed Pike County, Indiana. Click on each image for the full-size version. The first image shows the "hook" echo, which is often the classic radar signature of a tornado. The second image (right) shows the doppler-indicated winds.
