A National Weather Service storm survey team confirmed three tornadoes in Jefferson, Clark and Floyd counties Tuesday morning.
The Jefferson county tornado touched down briefly at 10:40 a.m. near the Madison Municipal County Airport. Wind speeds were estimated at 85 mph. The tornado moved a 500 pound dumpster 35 feet and pushed a Beechcraft/King airplane while damaging the nose gear.
Another tornado touched down at a Wal-mart parking lot in Clarksville turning over a car and damaging homes in its 2-mile path.
A cold front colliding with unusually warm January temperatures produced severe weather over most of south central Indiana Tuesday morning leaving thousands without power.
