Thunderstorms Roll Through South Central Indiana

A thunderstorm watch remains in effect until midnight.

One inch hail in Spencer, 60 MPH wind gusts in Sullivan and much needed heavy rain across much of south central Indiana are just a few of the storm reports that came into the National Weather Service office Thursday night.

Forecasters there say an approaching cold front triggered severe thunderstorms throughout the evening.

Trees and street signs were reported down in Freetown. Three and a half inches of rain was recorded 7 miles south of Spencer. Strong winds toppled trees in Knox County closing some roads.

A thunderstorm watch remains in effect for parts of south eastern Indiana until midnight.
