Strong Storms Hit Area Sunday

Strong storms, including several confirmed tornado touchdowns were reported Sunday afternoon, damaging several homes in Blackford, Delaware and Jay Counties.

In Muncie, the Muncie Fieldhouse and Muncie Central Football Stadium sustained significant damage, as did several area homes.  There was also significant damage in Jay County, near Portland where several homes and farm buildings were destroyed.

Indiana-Michigan Power reports there are still several thousand customers without electricity in Delaware, Blackford and Jay counties, although many have now been restored.  But power company officials say it could be another 24-hours before some homes and businesses get their electricity restored.

Despite the damage, no serious injuries were reported.
