TROY, Ind. (AP) - The National Weather Service confirms that a small tornado touched down near an Ohio River town in southern Indiana as the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill swept across the region.

The weather service said Saturday that an EF-0 tornado with winds of about 80 mph touched down Friday afternoon about one mile east-northeast of the Perry County town of Troy.

That Ohio River community about 45 miles east of Evansville is near the county seat of Tell City.

Weather service crews say the tornado left a trail of damage about one-third of a mile long and 150 yards wide.

No one was injured as the tornado touched down. Its damage was confined to a forested area near an industrial park where trees were stripped of limbs or snapped in half.
