Most of the viewing area was under a severe thunderstorm warning and tornado warning Wednesday night as storms rolled in again.

A tornado was reported on the ground just east of Goshen

At 8:53 pm National Weather Service doppler radar indicated a line of severe thunderstorms capable of producing destructive winds in excess of 80 mph.

Several trees were toppled by the storm.

In South Bend a tree fell onto a home in the 600 block of South 28th Street. Three people were injured, including a three-year-old and a 17-year-old. All were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Warsaw Police tell NewsCenter 16 many trees are down in the area and part of the roof at the Warsaw Foundry was blown off due to high winds.

19,000 NIPSCO, 13,000 Indiana Michigan Power and 8,000 Midwestern Energy customers were without power after the storms.
