Officials: No tornado, just straight-line winds

INDIANAPOLIS - Madison County officials said there is no evidence that a tornado touched down during Thursday afternoon's severe weather.

Officials said they found a 2-mile path of damage southeast of Anderson, but the downed trees and limbs all pointed toward the southeast, indicating straight-line winds.
