INDIANAPOLIS — An emergency official says the Indianapolis west side had luck on its side when a storm that had produced a tornado arrived in the city.

Wayne Township Fire Department Capt. Mike Pruitt said three to four homes suffered roof damage and several others had siding taken off or windows knocked out, but no one was injured.

He says, "We were fortunate that a lot of people had gone to work and the people that were home had received extensive warnings."

The tornado touched down in adjacent Hendricks County and damaged at least three homes there. There were no reports of injuries there, either.
