Storm damages barn, houses

A truck sits where it was blown over while a barn was destroyed by what local residents are saying was a tornado on E. Rayletown Road, Sunday, June 23, 2019 in Bloomington, Ind. However, Kacie Hoover, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, said they’ve seen zero evidence of a tornado, but that straight-line winds were 60 mph, however, they are investigating the event, and waiting to hear back from an emergency manager. Hoover said shelf clouds can sometimes look like a tornado. The severe weather event left power lines down, ripped up trees, damaged houses and cars, and left debris in its path. Houses on nearby Ornamental Drive were also damaged, and a tree fell on a car parked in a driveway on Handy Rd. Residents said the event took place in a few seconds. This story will be updated with video. (Photo by Jeremy Hogan/The Bloomingtonian)
