Tornadoes Indiana Towns

Tornadoes Indiana Towns, A string of violent storms scratched away at small towns in Indiana and cut off rural communities in Kentucky as an early-season tornado outbreak killed nearly 30 people, and U.S. authorities feared the already ugly death toll would rise as daylight broke on Saturday’s search for survivors.
Massive thunderstorms, predicted by forecasters for days, threw off dozens of tornadoes as they raced Friday from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes. Twisters that crushed entire blocks of homes knocked out cellphones and landlines alike, ripped power lines from broken poles and tossed cars, school buses and tractor-trailers onto roadways made impassable by debris.
Weather that put millions of people at risk Friday killed 29, but both the scale of the devastation and the breadth of the storms made an immediate assessment of the havoc’s full extent all but impossible.
In Kentucky, the National Guard and state police headed out to search wreckage for an unknown number of missing. In Indiana, authorities searched dark county roads connecting rural communities that officials said “are completely gone.”
“We won’t know what’s going on before daybreak,” cautioned Sheriff’s Maj. Chuck Adams of the Clark County, Ind., where one person was known to have died in hard-hit Henryville. “Right now, we’re getting by through the night as best we can.”
