Episode Narrative A large line of storms swept across central Indiana overnight causing sporadic damage in many areas. One weak tornado occurred west of Brownsburg near North Salem. Toppled trees, snapped limbs, and damage to a barn and house revealed evidence of rotation in the winds and damage consistent with an EF0 tornado.

Surveying in the Roachdale area north of Greencastle also yielded evidence of an EF0 tornado, where structural and tree damage was observed.

Additional damage survey work in southern Hendricks County southwest of Plainfield revealed two separate paths of straight-line wind damage paralleling both sides of US 40 east of Stilesville. Damage in Hazelwood, the southern-most of the two tracks, also offered evidence of a microburst, intense damage over a short and narrow path.
Event Narrative Surveying in the Roachdale area, north of Greencastle, yielded evidence of an EF-0 tornado. It occurred around 2:30 A.M. EDT just south of Roachdale where barn, shed, and tree damage were observed, suggesting rotating winds of up to 85 mph. An irrigation system was also flipped. This tornado was on the ground for approximately one mile in length and 1 to 2 minutes in time.
