BOONVILLE, Ind. (AP) - The National Weather Service says preliminary information shows a microburst damaged more than a dozen homes and other structures in southwestern Indiana earlier this week.

The weather service says the microburst Monday afternoon near Boonville, about 15 miles east of Evansville, had an estimated peak wind of 85 mph and covered six miles, with an average width of one mile.

It says the home and structure damage included some loss of shingles and other minor exterior damage. It also uprooted dozens of trees and downed many tree limbs.

The weather service says other straight-line wind damage extended across much of Warrick and Spencer counties, particularly in the northern and central sections.
