The weather service said Monday survey crews determined that two EF-0 tornadoes struck northern Indiana’s Marshal and Wabash counties on Friday, damaging trees, a home and a barn. Both storms packed maximum winds of 70 mph (112 kilometer per hour).

An EF-1 tornado with winds of 105 mph (169 kph) was previously confirmed in southern Indiana’s Harrison County. State Police report 20 homes were damaged when that storm swept the Ohio River county on Friday.
