Authorities say at least ten people were injured, one critically, when a tornado hit the small Rush County community of Moscow last night.

A 66-year-old woman was impaled in the upper chest by a 3-inch diameter tree limb when a tornado leveled her home. Diane Hester is in critical but stable condition at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

The tornado destroyed several other homes in Moscow, destroyed a 19th century covered bridge and ripped the top floor from an old brick school

The overnight storms also damaged 40 buildings at the Indiana National Guard's Camp Atterbury about 25 miles south of Indianapolis.

Two soldiers were hurt as they were driving back to the base to seek shelter when their car struck a gate. More than 2,000 troops are at the camp.
