Leaving a Mark


Hail from a storm front that came through Central Indiana Wednesday evening, April 17, 2013, broke the side view mirror of this pickup truck.

A fast-moving hailstorm broke windows, punched holes in siding and left cars riddled with dents across Johnson County.

The storm tore through the Trafalgar area and swept northeast through Johnson County on Wednesday evening, Johnson County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Randy Werden said. Hail that ranged from grape-sized to nearly baseball-sized socked Trafalgar, Prince’s Lakes, Needham, Franklin, Whiteland and the Rocklane Road area east of Greenwood, causing major and extensive damage.

Residents braced for a second storm Thursday evening, when central Indiana was under a tornado watch. They boarded up windows and put tarp over holes in their roofs and prayed that the next storm wouldn’t bring even more damage to fix.
