Little damage reported from Jennings County storm

The National Weather service is reporting up to four inches of rain in some areas of Jennings County overnight, along with a funnel cloud sighting. But little damage has been reported to authorities.

The weather service reported that law enforcement officers identified rotation in the storm last night at about 9:40 p.m. near Butlerville. Britt Burgmeier, the Jennings County 911 center director, says that there have been no reports that a tornado touched down and no reports of property damage to buildings. Only a handful of trees were reportedly knocked down by the storm, he said.

One resident reported a half-mile wide tornado touched down but there is no evidence of that, Burgmeier said.

A flood warning for the county expired this morning. If you do come across a flooded roadway,  authorities urge you not to drive into high water. Instead, turn around and don’t drown.
