DANVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Tornadoes touched down in central Indiana and heavy rains caused flooding in South Bend as storms moved through the state.

The National Weather Service confirmed at least three tornado touchdowns Monday. The weather service said the first was seen in Danville at 5:52 p.m., the second shortly after near Pittsboro and the third in Brownsburg at about 6:30 p.m.

Hendricks County Sheriff's Department Captain Amanda Goings said no injuries were reported by 9:30 p.m. Monday.

In South Bend, heavy rainfall caused widespread flooding. City officials asked residents to stay home and off the roads. Mayor Pete Buttigieg said early Tuesday that two houses have collapsed. City officials say rescues were underway because floodwaters left vehicles stranded.

The Red Cross has opened an emergency shelter.
