Severe Storms Cause Damage in Four States
Tuesday, November 15, 2005
PARIS, Tenn. - Severe thunderstorms rolled across the nation´s midsection late Tuesday, producing funnel clouds that tore off roofs and destroyed or damaged buildings in at least four states.

Tornado touchdowns were spotted in 12 counties in western and central Tennessee, with some of the worst damage occurring in Henry County, about 90 miles west of Nashville.

"Numerous homes there were damaged, some completely destroyed," said Faye Scott, spokeswoman for the Henry County Sheriff´s Department. "It´s major destruction."

Funnel clouds were also sighted in Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, where one storm-related death was reported. The National Weather Service could not immediately confirm the tornados.

A tornado made a direct hit on Henry County´s emergency management center, forcing authorities to relocate to another building to handle the disaster, County Mayor Brent Greer said.

The county medical center treated 13 people with injuries, mostly cuts and bruises, hospital spokeswoman Sandra Sims said.

The storm also ripped the roof off the main shop at the county highway department, destroyed two smaller shops and damaged a furniture manufacturer next door, Greer said.

Most of the highway department staffers were able to take cover in the basement. "We´re very fortunate," Greer said.

Been having ice/sleet storms, along with intense winds here in southeastern MN all day. Lost power for over 2 1/2 hours straight, with many other short-term outages, not of such duration.
