The National Weather Service has determined that a tornado hit a rural area of northern Indiana as strong storms moved across the state.

The weather service says the EF1 tornado was on the ground for about a mile Saturday near the LaPorte County town of Rolling Prairie. The tornado had winds around 90 mph, knocking down several trees and destroying a barn and garage.

About 100,000 homes or businesses across much of the state lost power for a time after the storms came through Saturday and early Sunday.
