Severe Weather


During the early afternoon hours of July 11, 2017, a decaying mesoscale convective system (MCS) moved into western portions of the area. The complex began to bow forward as it entered the area, and strong winds aloft were transported down to the ground. There were measured winds of at least 63 MPH near Richmond, IN with numerous reports of downed trees and minor structural damage through east central Indiana and west central Ohio. The complex eventually dissipated as it moved east through the middle of the afternoon, but not before creating a swath of widespread wind damage stretching from Wayne County, Indiana through Montgomery County, Ohio.
