Storm blows off some roofs in northern Indiana

MISHAWAKA (AP) — The roofs were blown off some buildings in northern Indiana as a storm with winds sometimes topping 60 mph swept through the state.

The National Weather Service says Wednesday night's storm caused scattered building, tree and power line damage, including reports near the cities of Wabash and Rochester.

WNDU-TV reports the roof was ripped from an electronics manufacturing company building in Mishawaka, with the building owner saying much of its machinery has significant water damage. The Times of Munster reports a home at Lakes of the Four Seasons in Lake County lost its roof, but no one was injured.

Weather service meteorologist Nathan Marsili says all the northern Indiana damage appears to be from straight-line winds.
