ANDERSON, Ind. —  Despite warnings of possible strong winds, large hail and flooding Wednesday night, Madison County appears to have made it through relatively unscathed.

The severe storms, traveling southeast from the Chicago area, hit central Indiana overnight, partially fueled by temperatures that soared as high as the nineties.

According to Sheriff Ron Richardson, there were no damage reports made to police dispatch by Thursday morning.

“I did observe some standing in the fields and along roads side this (Thursday) morning,” he said. He’d only seen “one location this morning that had some water across the road, but it was not deep by any means.”

In Elwood, where April’s flooding damaged over 120 households, there was relatively little water accumulation.

“We were a little worried for a bit there,” said city spokesman Jeff Howe. “But overall, there’s not a whole lot.”
