Governor Mike Pence is touring the state after multiple tornado touchdowns yesterday.
Pence made plans to visit the hardest-hit communities of Kokomo, Logansport, Lafayette and Washington.
His first stop this morning was in Kokomo. Several homes and businesses there were damaged and emergency officials say at least 30 people are hospitalized.
No deaths were reported.
While touring Kokomo, Pence expressed gratitude that there was no loss of life in the state of Indiana due to the storms.
“Having walked through the neighborhoods today, I am even more grateful and more astonished that there was no loss of life in the state of Indiana. The extraordinary damage of the neighborhoods here in Kokomo alone confirms my belief that Hoosiers armed with information of the advancing storm, took prudent action to protect themselves and their families.”
Pence also applauded emergency officials who warned residents about the storm, who were then able to seek shelter.
“Emergency management officials reached out and communicated the severity of this storm to the people that they serve and, they’re to be commended for that.”
Pence promises that the state will work closely with local officials to determine the full extent of Sunday’s storm.
He says it is too soon to say whether the state will seek disaster assistance from the federal government.
