There was isolated damage and intermittent power outages last night as multiple storm fronts passed through the area. Indiana Michigan Power is not currently reporting any outages in northern Marshall County, although several customers in the South Bend area are still without electricity. NIPSCO is only reporting one customer still without power in the Plymouth area.
According to the National Weather Service, wind speeds were primarily clocked at between 50 and 60 miles per hour across the region, but one trained spotter north of Toto clocked a wind gust of 75 mph. Radar also indicated rotation in one storm as it passed through Fulton County, although no tornadoes have been reported. The severe storms dumped around one inch of rain across most of Marshall County, with some isolated pockets between Plymouth and Bourbon seeing as much as two inches.
The North Judson area was particularly hard-hit with several down trees. According to the North Judson-Wayne Township Fire Department, they responded to five separate incidents last night. At one point, both State Roads 10 and 39 were completely blocked. INDOT was busy clearing the debris from the highways in that area this morning.
The worst storm damage was seen in Centennial Park in Plymouth. One of the walking bridges was heavily damaged when a tree fell through the wooden structure. The trail leading across the Yellow River behind the sledding hill is currently closed until repairs can be made.
