High winds knock down bleachers, trees in Edinburgh

EDINBURGH, Ind. - Rain and wind damaged an Edinburgh school after storms rolled through the state Tuesday evening.

There was significant damage to the bleachers at Edinburgh Community High School. The high winds bent and twisted the bleachers, lifting them from the ground next to the football field.

Nobody was there at the time of the storm and no injuries were reported.

The track team had an away meet Tuesday night. When students returned from the meet, they were surprised to find the damage.

The director of the Johnson County Emergency Management Agency said there was a decent amount of storm-related damage around Edinburgh.

Officials said storms knocked down trees in Rest Haven Cemetery and damaged a nearby garage. 

The storm also knocked down some power lines, but electric companies were only reporting a handful of power outages.

Crews, including the National Weather Service, planned to survey the damage Wednesday morning.
