Weather Service: Severe storm that hit SW Indiana unleashed winds estimated at 120 mph

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, May 10, 2014 1:37 PM EDT

The National Weather Service says a severe thunderstorm that hit southwestern Indiana on Friday afternoon unleashed straight-line winds estimated at 120 mph in some areas.

Lead forecaster Greg Meffert with the National Weather Service's Paducah, Kentucky office says a survey team found structural damage caused by 70 to 90 mph winds in southern Vanderburgh County, including some areas where the winds reached an estimated 120 mph.

No injuries were reported, but about 9,000 Vectren customers remained without power Saturday afternoon.

Meffert says the team found a path of damage about 3 miles wide and is proceeding into adjacent Warrick County to continue their assessment.

He says the survey team has seen no evidence that a tornado hit the area and the damage appears to have been caused by straight-line winds.
