INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The National Weather Service has now confirmed that at least eight tornadoes hit Indiana during Wednesday's outbreak.

Survey teams confirmed five tornadoes swept central Indiana's Carroll, Howard, Marion and Montgomery counties on Wednesday, including an EF3 tornado with winds of up to 152 mph that damaged homes and businesses in Kokomo.

Another three tornadoes have been confirmed in northeastern Indiana's Allen, Adams and Wells counties.

Dan McCarthy, the meteorologist in charge of the weather service's Indianapolis office, says no additional evidence of tornadoes is expected to be found in central Indiana.

But meteorologist Amos Dodson in the agency's North Webster, Indiana, office says crews are still surveying damage near Peru to determine if it was caused by a tornado. The Allen County tornado's storm damage is also still being surveyed.
