At least 2 tornadoes hit Indiana, NWS confirms
February 23, 2014 (INDIANAPOLIS) -- The National Weather Service says at least two tornadoes struck Indiana as severe thunderstorms swept across the state.
Meteorologists say a tornado ranking as an EF1 on the Fujita scale and packing 90 mph winds struck Thursday night about four miles north of Osgood in southeastern Indiana's Ripley County.
That storm knocked a mobile home off its foundation and damaged two pole barns, leaving a nearly mile-long path.
A second tornado ranking as an EF0 with winds of about 85 mph damaged two outbuildings and toppled trees Thursday evening in central Indiana's Rush County near the town of Arlington.
The weather service says that storm was on the ground for less than a minute and left a path of damage less than a tenth of a mile long.
