HENRYVILLE, IN (WAVE) – Large tornadoes roared across south-central Indiana Friday afternoon, causing widespread damage and injuries, leveling Marysville, IN and much of Henryville, IN in northern Clark County. At least one person was killed in Henryville.

Widespread damage was also reported in the northern Clark County communities of Henryville, Memphis and Borden and the Washington County community of Pekin, IN.

The Jefferson County, IN coroner was called to investigate possibly two deaths in Chelsea. A four-year-old child was believed to be missing there. There were also reports of possible fatalities in Pekin.

I wonder if we should reconsider our offer on a house just 8 miles SW of Henryville?

We received a copy of the appraisal about 4PM this afternoon.
