HENRY COUNTY — The National Weather Service says an EF-1 tornado caused damage across parts of Henry County Monday evening.

Henry County Emergency Management Director Ron Huffman said the tornado was mostly tree-top and a majority of the damage was centered around the area of 750N and Mechanicsburg Road just south of Middletown.

The damage included mostly trees and power lines down but a few structures were significantly damaged. No injuries were reported.

Huffman says they will continue their assessment and provide update if additional information is available.

Henry County's tornado damage was the second to be confirmed by the NWS on Tuesday. Crews were in multiple parts of Indiana surveying damage to determine the cause, including Pendleton, which was the hardest-hit in central Indiana.
