A survey by the National Weather Service has confirmed tornado damage in two Indiana counties.

The severe storms caused major damage in the town of Pendleton in Madison County Monday night. Many homes were damaged, and thousands were without power. 

The Red Cross has set up at Pendleton Heights High School to provide assistance to local residents. There have been no reported fatalities. South Madison Community Schools are closed due to the storms. 

State Police say all traffic into Pendleton has been suspended until crews can clear debris from streets and power can be restored.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis confirmed Tuesday that an EF-2 tornado caused damage northeast of Huntsville, along the Pendleton tornado track. The survey also confirmed EF-1 tornado damage in Henry County south of Middletown.
