(Aurora, Ind.) – Thunderstorms rolling through the tri-state did some minor damage and put some residents in the dark Tuesday evening.

Much of southeast Indiana went under a Sever Thunderstorm Warning by the National Weather Service at around 5:00 p.m.

As the storms crossed the region, several fallen trees were reported in the Aurora area, where wind gusts higher than 64 MPH were reported. Sporadic power outages were also reported. Frequent lightning accompanied the weather event.

The storm also produced some ominous-looking clouds. Some appeared to take the shape of a funnel, but no tornado touchdowns were reported in the area Tuesday.

According to the weather service, a chance of thunderstorms developing exists Wednesday afternoon and evening. The day’s high temperature is expected to be about 85.
