Baku, Azerbaijan, Aug. 25
Three tornadoes touched down in Indiana, damaging numerous structures in Kokomo and leaving 15-20 people injured, authorities said, CNN reported.
The Indiana State Police said the injuries occurred in Kokomo and rural Howard Country.
"All of the reported injuries are considered minor at this time," the state police said. "Most of the injuries were the result of flying debris. There are no reported deaths."
Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight said the storm caused "pretty severe property damage" and downed many trees.
"I am in a residential neighborhood and there is a lot of roof damage, windows out, a roof completely taken off the home, power out," he said. "It is pretty substantial. I have seen damage to about 50 homes so far. We are still looking at the damage."
A temporary state of emergency was declared in Howard County and Kokomo, meaning all roads are closed except for public safety and emergency vehicles.
