On November 22, 1992, Indiana was hit by 15 tornadoes which destroyed dozens of buildings, damaged hundreds more with damage estimates of 12 million dollars. Twelve of these were in Central Indiana. Fortunately, there were no fatalities and only six injuries. The tornadoes occurred between 2 pm and 6 pm EST in central and eastern Indiana and, at the time, represented the largest tornado outbreak for November. These tornadoes were spawned by a strong weather system that yielded 94 tornadoes from Texas to North Carolina that weekend.
