INDIANAPOLIS — Severe thunderstorms that swept northern and central Indiana led to several tornado warnings but no confirmed touchdowns.
Meteorologist Jason Puma in the National Weather Service’s Indianapolis office says six tornado warning were issued Friday night for Indiana after radar detected rotation in several storms. He says there had been no touchdowns confirmed as of 10 p.m.
Puma noted that the same storms had produced confirmed tornadoes in central Illinois before those storms moved into Indiana.
He says the storms produced vivid lightning and heavy rainfall in Indiana, affecting outdoor activities.
Some high school football games were called off and the Tipton Pork Festival closed at 10 p.m. Friday as storms neared the central Indiana city.
Much of Indiana remained under a tornado watch until 2 a.m. Saturday.
