INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Severe thunderstorms possibly including tornadoes have battered parts of Indiana, causing sporadic damage and some flooding.

The National Weather Service, citing a ham radio report, reported a small tornado touched down and caused damage about 2 p.m. Sunday a few miles southeast of Portland. Damage assessments will be going in Jay County. There were no injuries reported there.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department reported storms blew down trees and power lines in that area about 50 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky.

Earlier, in northern Indiana, the weather service said heavy rains sent water flowing over roads in North Webster.

Indiana Michigan Power is working to fix outages in several areas, including nearly 2,800 in Steuben County and just over 2,100 customers in Grant County.
