Bad weather, high winds ravage county

October 26, 2010

Two tornadoes touched down in Whitley County Tuesday morning leaving millions of dollars in damage, but no loss of human life, in their wake.
Officials with the National Weather Service said a tornado that landed near county road 400 S was an EF1 twister, capable of winds between 86 and 110 mph. A second tornado was an EF0 in southwestern Whitley County. Winds in an EF0 tornado measure 65 to 85 mph.

Both tornadoes were on the ground for approximately two miles.
While the tornadoes by-passed the county’s communities, damage in the rural areas was extensive.
