I'm just north of Indy. It is a big difference between our areas, for sure!

idk, i guess maybe you all live in different parts of indiana than i do- b/c as i said before, I live in the "Kentuckiana" part, and almost every house I've lived in (which is quite a few in the past 10 years) I have seen at least some damage- whether it be to my home, or my neighbors, or fallen trees everywhere.

either way, just be smart about weather and you'll be fine to move here!!! it's really nice in indiana!!

Two "p"s. I live about 20 minutes N. of there and am about to drive down through on my way to my parent's in Akron. Only minor injuries and damage were reported. Not sure how bad it really was, but I'll find out in a little bit.

The storms formed a line from Southern Michigan down to Fulton County. Heard that there were tornadoes spotted in Michigan as well. And I missed a lot of the ALCS game because of it.

My parents live close to Nappanee ... the town is closed. If you go on South Bend Tribune's website, you'll see the damage ... major major major.

But I noticed that a lot of the tornado's happen to the south of Indiana...so does that mean tornado's never occur in the northern areas of Indiana?

What's the matter? Isn't Washington pretty enough for ya?

The Weather Channel said more than 100 homes were damaged in Nappanee. And a baby was tossed 40 ft by the winds. Thank goodness the baby is fine.

The pictures they were showing are stunning.

I was at a parade a month ago in that town. Seeing the pictures from main street were shocking ... mom and dad said that there were over 200 homes damaged. Friends from college were fortunate to get into the basement, but their house was ripped out over the top of them.

Also a VERY small town in southern Indiana- Huron, IN was hit pretty bad a few nights ago. No one actually saw a tornado go through, but it totalled several cars, damaged some houses, trees down everywhere. This is what I was trying to explain when i posted several days ago!!! It's OCTOBER!!! The end of October at that!! Tornadoes/straight-line winds/bad weather is soooo unpredictable now!!!
