Gov. Mitch Daniels and other officials plan to tour parts of central Indiana to look at damage caused by the state's latest bout of severe weather.

Daniels will join Indiana National Guard Gen. Martin Umbarger on Thursday in visiting Camp Atterbury, the tornado-damaged Guard facility about 25 miles south of Indianapolis. The Guard says two soldiers suffered minor injuries Tuesday night as they sought shelter from the tornado, which had wind speeds reaching an estimated 130 mph.

Umbarger and Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman also visit the tiny Rush County community of Moscow, where another tornado damaged many buildings and injured several people.
