Episode Narrative A powerful cold front sparked a lengthy squall line that crossed all of southern Indiana on the evening of January 29. A large number of locations had 60 to as much as 100 mph winds, causing extensive property damage. There were also a few small tornado spin-ups, one of which caused a fatality when a tree fell onto a mobile home near Henryville, Indiana.
Event Narrative A half-mile wide swath of damaging straight-line winds stretched for four miles from Henryville to the Scott County line, with wind gusts to near 90 mph. Numerous trees were snapped or uprooted by down burst winds on Beagle Club Road and Old State Road.
