In addition to the EF-1 tornado that struck Plainfield and part of the west side of Indianapolis, the National Weather Service now says tornadoes also hit Owen County and Morgan County on Tuesday.
The first tornado touched down around 1:30 p.m. almost 5.5. miles northwest of the town of Gosport. It stayed on the ground for about a half mile and was rated an EF-0, with winds of around 85 mph, causing damage to trees and several buildings.
About 20 minutes later, a tornado touched down about a 1.5 miles southeast of Eminence in Morgan County. It uprooted several trees and destroyed a barn as it traveled about a quarter of a mile. It had winds of around 94 mph, rating it an EF-1.
The Plainfield/Indianapolis tornado touched down just after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and was on the ground for three miles. The weather service lengthened its original estimate by half a mile after a second survey of the damage.
Seventeen homes in Hendricks County were damaged, while up to 100 houses in Marion County received at least some damage.
Around 200 vehicles at a car auction facility in Plainfield were also damaged. The weather service says there was also straight line wind damage in Speedway after the tornadoes lifted.
