INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The National Weather Service says Tuesday’s storms that dumped heavy rains and golf ball-sized hail also spawned two weak tornadoes in central Indiana.

The weather service confirmed Thursday that an EF-0 tornado hit near Buck Creek in Tippecanoe County and an EF-0 tornado was detected near Covington in Fountain County.

No injuries were reported. Damage to a barn as well as downed trees and power lines were reported in Tippecanoe County. Tree branches were knocked down in Fountain County.
