We Have the All Clear in Tippecanoe, Warren, and Fountain Counties

We had some rotation reported in the clouds in Fountain County on State Road 55, but the good news is that the rotation did not reach the ground. The tornado warning has been canceled for our viewing area. But if you live in Carroll, Clinton, northeast Tippecanoe, Howard, Cass, and Miami Counties you could still be in line for severe thunderstorms this evening. The biggest threat will be damaging straight-line winds in excess of 60 mph. We had one report of an estimated wind gust near 60 mph on US231 and 800 South. So areas in our eastern area need to stay tuned for the latest.

We are checking into one report of damage on the southside at Stonebreaker Court. This was an area that saw some rotating clouds. I will get back. This was a storm that popped up out ahead of the main line so it will be interesting what we find.

Mike, the SPC site says that there was a tornado reported on the ground in Warren County near State Road 55.

I also did see some rotation with one of the clouds out ahead of the main line that looked like it went over the north side of Lafayette.

Lucky you W in R! I was going to take a picture of those 3 lowering wall clouds all in the same frame from here in Lafayette, but my camera wasn't working. I wonder if anyone else caught them?

Near Kossuth Street we had heavy rain, not sure how much, a lot of wind! I think the lightning storm we had was worse then this storm.

I saw the rotating clouds, I took pics also!

Mike I have a question for you..I saw something I haven't seen before. I was looking west from here in Lafayette over the Wabash and saw three lowered wall clouds all approaching at once...

My question is, what's it called when you see a cloud moving UP? The middle of these lowered clouds (I don't want to call them scuds because they were much bigger), it had a cloud that was below it and it looked like it was sucking the lower cloud upward back into the main wall cloud. Is there a name for that? Thanks.

Mark, Lafayette

Just home from the Relay for Life at Jeff, what a mess. I am glad nothing very serious happened, there was no plan at all, no one knew what was happening. How's it look for later on now? Another watch box in Illinois?

The rainbow was beautiful and huge - almost a complete horizon-to-horizon arc when we noticed it! Unfortunately, it's hard to photograph from my location because of power lines that make for pretty poor composition. I hope many of you saw it.

We were at "Family Night" at the YMCA Straight Arrow camp when the tornado warnings went off... then, we were told that we had no choice but had to leave the camp! My family was basically forced to drive home to West Lafayette and through the worst of the storm -- very scary... guess the Director of the Y didn't want any liabilities with families staying on their grounds. We were lucky that there turned out not to be any tornado as our cars were the worst place for us to be. We drove under a rotating cloud at one point. Very scary and very unfortunate that we were sent out into that bad weather.

i'm so sorry i missed the rainbow! where/when did you guys see it?

once again, i was trapped in a "Weather shelter" on a friday night while working.....not fun!! but when i left the south side of lafayette (creasy and mccarty) around 7:45pm-ish it was raining so hard it was nearly impossible to drive! there was also some really beautiful lightening in the clouds (it looked like cloud to cloud...none of the strikes looked like they hit the groud. i could be wrong about that though). but as i headed east, the storm lightened up. i was really bummed i missed the storm YET AGAIN! i gotta quit working on fridays....haha

glad everything was ok and MAYBE i will eventually get the lightening shot i've been trying to get all year!!!
