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.
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.
