SALEM, Ind. (AP) — The National Weather Service says it plans to survey storm damage in southern Indiana after high winds, hail and possible tornadoes swept across the state.

The weather service says a storm survey is planned Friday in northwest Washington County. In Bartholomew County, The (Columbus) Republic reports area residents took cover Thursday after tornado warning sirens sounded. The Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. held students at schools until the severe weather passed.

The storms left thousands of power customers without service and utilities worked Friday to restore power.

The weather service recorded a 60 mph wind gust at Indianapolis International Airport.

It says damage from the storms included the roof ripped off a mobile home in Speedway near Indianapolis. It came as a late-winter storm system trekked across the Midwest.
