Cleanup continues after Indy tornado

Indianapolis authorities helped dozens of people gather their belongings from their apartments damaged by a tornado over the weekend.

The residents were outfitted in hardhats, gloves and goggles and returned Monday to collect items such as medicine, car keys and important documents. Firefighters and social workers escorted them to the Falcon Point apartments from a nearby school.

A tornado blew the roof off some of the apartments and sheared the brick off of others. Windows were broken and some doors were damaged or missing. The entire complex was littered with debris.

Marion County emergency officials estimate 29 million dollars in damages from the severe storms that hit Indianapolis late Friday. Eighteen people were treated for minor injuries after the storm, which damaged more than 500 homes and other buildings.
