The weather service said a survey team Monday confirmed an EF1 tornado north of Bedford with maximum winds estimated at 90 mph.

It says survey teams also confirmed at least three other tornadoes, all rated EF2 on the Fujita scale. One traveled 3.5 miles, ending in Lebanon in a neighborhood behind a damaged Starbucks shop. It was 75 yards wide with maximum winds of 120 mph.

Another began in southwestern Knox County, near Vincennes, and traveled 19.4 miles. It was 100 yards wide.

The weather service says it found two tornado paths in the Kokomo area, one short and the other about 10 miles long. It wasn't clear if it was one tornado or two.
