Storm rips through parts of Tippecanoe County

TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – Severe weather ripped through the area Monday night snapping trees in half, leaving power lines in the roads and plenty of debris in parts of Tippecanoe County.

News 18 received reports of wind gusts up to 60 and 65 miles per hour in the east part of the county. We had reports of all sizes of hail, the largest being 2 inches in diameter. That’s slightly bigger than a golf ball.

Trees had fallen on several houses and even a minivan that was completely covered in limbs.

Sydney Santon said she saw threatening clouds, then took shelter and called 911.

“We have a little rental property up front that the side of it is just completely gone. Trees fell on it and just some other trees in the yard that are just down. No power lines around here, but probably down the road there’s some,” said Santon.
