A high-wind warning remained in effect for the Decatur area and much of northeast Indiana today, but no storms of the type that hit the area on Tuesday were expected.
The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reported in its morning edition that meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Syracuse confirmed that tornadoes touched down in Huntington, Whitley, Wabash and Van Wert counties. No serious injuries or deaths were reported.
A tornado that apparently developed near the Indiana-Ohio state line caused significant damage in Van Wert County, Ohio, at midday Tuesday, but no one was injured.
Van Wert County Emergency Management Director Rick McCoy reported that the twister struck about 11:15 a.m. as it moved north of US 224 toward Convoy, Ohio. Wind speeds were recorded at 80 to 85 mph.
He also said strong rotational winds were spotted by radar near Berne, with speeds up to 70 mph.
