Sunday's Severe Weather: Storm Reports

A line of severe storms set up just west of Michiana in the late afternoon hours.  With a history of producing hail, gusty winds, heavy downpours, and frequent lightning, a severe thunderstorm watch was issued for our western and southern most counties as they inched closer and closer to our area.  Since we saw overcast skies and showers earlier in the day with minimal sunshine, these storms weakened as they crossed into our region.  As they started to build up again, severe thunderstorm watches were then issued in Starke, Pulaski, Marshall & Fulton counties.  

As the line of severe thunderstorms rolled through the warning areas in Michiana, numerous reports associated with thunderstorm wind damage in Starke, Marshall, Pulaski and Fulton counties.  Here is a list in the table below of the damages reported to the National Weather Service of Northern Indiana through trained spotters and a 911 call center.

Showers and thunderstorms will continue through the overnight hours into early Monday morning, mainly focused on our southern most counties with the main concern on flash flooding.  Rainfall rates have already topped out between 1.00"-3.00" and more heavy downpours are in the forecast overnight.  As always, stay with ABC-57 News for the latest forecast updates.
