GREENE COUNTY, Ind. - Storms moving through southern Indiana prompted tornado warnings to be issued Tuesday evening.

A tornado warning was issued for Greene County near Bloomfield. Law enforcement agencies said a tornado was spotted 10 miles south of Bloomfield just before 7:30 p.m. The warning expired at 8:45 p.m.

There were no reports of severe weather north of Interstate 70 and there was very little activity in eastern parts of the state.

"There is no overall watch or significant threat of severe weather. I think what we're seeing here is very localized conditions which may have produced a touchdown and a weak tornado from what we can surmise so far," Storm Team 6 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Gregory said.

Heavy rain was expected to continue throughout the evening after the tornado warnings expired.
