Storm cleanup will begin Monday.

Strong storms overnight left a trail of debris across south-central Indiana, including downed trees, power outages and homes damaged.

Daviess County emergency management officials say one property saw three of four walls of one farmhouse and the several of the property’s turkey barns blown down by strong winds.  A garage door on a home in Gosport was blown off and 60 mile-per-hour winds were reported across much of the area.

Despite the wind damage, The National Weather Service has not confirmed that any tornadoes touched down overnight.  At the height of the outages, Putnam County appeared to have the most, with more than 1,500 in Greencastle alone.  Emergency management officials there report many downed trees from the high winds.  There were also more than 1,000 Brown County homes in the dark.
