HUNTINGTON, Ind. (AP) - The National Weather Service says not only did two tornadoes touch down in northern Indiana early Thursday, but the storms actually crossed paths.

Meteorologist Todd Holsten with the weather service’s North Webster office says the tornadoes damaged fields, woods and farm properties in Huntington County.

The first tornado was an EF-1 with winds up to 105 mph and the second was an EF-2 packing winds up to 120 mph. Both were on the ground for about 2.5 miles and their paths crossed south of the city of Huntington some 15 miles southwest of Fort Wayne.

Holsten says the EF-2 tornado at one point produced multiple vortexes, with smaller tornadoes circling a central point.

He says survey teams found three separate damage paths in a wooded area that storm swept through.
