Police: Nearly 3 dozen injured in Kokomo area after Sunday storms

KOKOMO, Ind. - Kokomo police say nearly three dozen people were injured when a suspected tornado swept through the north-central Indiana city, leaving a trail of destruction.

Major Brian Seldon of the Kokomo Police Department says Howard County emergency management says 32 people were injured in Sunday's storm, but that only three of those people were injured seriously enough to require hospitalization.

Seldon says most of the people injured in the suspected tornado suffered only minor injuries.

He says officials are still assessing how many homes and businesses in the Kokomo area were damaged by the storm, which swept through Kokomo's southeast side along U.S. 31.

Seldon says State Police are helping Kokomo officers patrol the damaged areas and are asking people to stay away from storm-ravaged neighborhoods.
