12 Tornadoes Slam Indiana and Ohio (Videos and Photos)

(N.Morgan) A wave of severe storms spawned at least a dozen tornadoes in Indiana and Ohio. Homes and businesses were damaged, but there were no serious injuries reported by authorities on Thursday, as crews worked to restore power and remove fallen trees.

The National Weather Service reported an EF3 tornado hit the south side of Kokomo, Indiana, packing winds of up to 165 mph.

That tornado toppled a Starbucks coffee shop and damaged numerous homes and businesses in the city about 40 miles north of Indianapolis.

Howard County Sheriff Steve Rogers said the 10 to 15 Kokomo residents who were hurt suffered only minor injuries.

Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight divulged Thursday that about 220 people stayed overnight in a temporary shelter.

Police were restricting access to storm-damaged neighborhoods, saying residents must show identification to be able to enter.

“The areas that have been hit the hardest, we’re asking people to stay away unless they absolutely have to be in those areas,” Goodnight said at a news conference, adding that he’s thankful and relieved no one was killed or seriously injured.

Tornadoes were also observed across the border in northwest Ohio.

Emergency Management Agency spokesman Jay Carey said damage was reported in Defiance, Henry, Paulding and Van Wert counties and that one person was reportedly hurt.

The worst damage appeared to be at a mobile home park in Defiance. The roads around the site were blocked late Wednesday.

      Hello Angle#3(Of-ful Prelim),

      Charlie here. I believe Indiana is tornado country? What was more interesting was in one video all those cars zooming by in both directions and brought to mind that verse that says in the latter days, “many shall travel to and fro…”.

      How did they know??

      Signed,

      Charlie (something bigger than 12 tornadoes are coming. We are all about to be run over by a giant doughnut!) :lol: :lol:

      Interesting that pence was just starting to come out and be a pretty good spokesperson for Trump.

      There are a number of days left on the calendar till the election

      do you suppose if he gets done with this disaster and gets back on the campaign trail for trump and gets on a roll again that more disasters will call him back to indiana again?

      and they keep building big fragile, stick-homes, vulnerable to wind, hail and fire. humans can’t learn from history…
