Rescue workers are combing through an apartment building on Indianapolis' east side.
Severe storms that ripped through Indiana last night apparently caused the building to collapse. WISH-TV reports one floor was dumped on top of another.
Television reports showed injured residents being helped onto stretchers.
The storms hit several counties with torrential rains and damaging winds and spawned reports of tornadoes.
The National Weather Service says weather spotters reported two tornadoes northeast of Lafayette about 7:30 p.m. Funnel clouds also were reported in Vermillion County and near Marion. Tornado warnings were issued for several counties as the storms headed southeast.
