Weather Service: At least 23 tornadoes hit Indiana on Sunday

INDIANAPOLIS — The National Weather Service says at least 23 tornadoes touched down Sunday in Indiana, making it the third-biggest tornado outbreak in state history.

Meteorologist John Kwiatkowski says Indiana’s most active tornado day was June 2, 1990, when 33 tornadoes touched down.  Indiana’s second-largest tornado outbreak day was May 30, 2004, when 24 tornadoes cut across the state.

Kwiatkowski says a weather service survey team was visiting Montgomery County in west-central Indiana Tuesday aiming to determine if storm damage there was caused by one or more tornadoes. He says if the team finds evidence of two or more additional tornadoes then Sunday would become the state’s second-most active tornado day.

Kwiatkowski says it’s sometimes hard to determine if storm damage was inflicted by a weak tornado or a powerful thunderstorm.
