ELIZABETH, Ind. (AP) - The National Weather Service says a small tornado touched down overnight in a small southern Indiana town near the Ohio River.
A survey crew from the weather service's Louisville, Ky., office confirmed that an EF-O tornado touched down in the Harrison County town of Elizabeth about 3 a.m. Wednesday. Meteorologist Mike Callahan says the tornado packed winds up to 80 mph as it cut a half-mile track through the area.
Callahan says crews were also assessing reported tornado touchdowns near Salem in Washington County and the Orange County town of Prospect.
Elizabeth resident Teresa Campbell tells WLKY-TV the tornado heavily damaged a barn and old school house on her property and stripped shingles from her home. Neighbor Matt Marion says the tornado "sounded like a big vacuum cleaner."
