INDIANAPOLIS - Severe thunderstorms are raking parts of Indiana for the second time in three days.
The National Weather Service reports the traffic control tower at Evansville Regional Airport was briefly evacuated Sunday afternoon after staff there recorded an 89 mph wind gust. It says hail fell across parts of southern and central Indiana.
The new round of storm came on the heels of a Friday storm that produced straight-line winds as high as 120 mph that heavily damaged the roof of Boonville High School, about 15 miles northeast of Evansville.
The school canceled Monday classes.
Vectren Energy Delivery estimates nearly 1,700 of its electric customers in southwestern Indiana remained without power Sunday afternoon.
In Indianapolis, a home in the Treyburn Lakes subdivion on the far east side sustained an estimated $65,000 worth of damage from a lightning strike.
Though other areas of the Midwest experienced tornados, no touchdowns were reported in Indiana.
