    According to local authorities there were no injuries Sunday night when Montgomery County saw thunderstorms and at least one tornado.
    The National Weather Service first issued both severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings over the course of the evening. Not long after reports of a thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado 16 miles northwest of Crawfordsville moving east at 25 m.p.h., National Weather Service radar showed a tornado and ping pong ball sized hail near Wingate and New Richmond.
    Brian Campbell, Deputy Director of the Montgomery County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) told The Paper there he did not know of any injuries associated with the storm by the time The Paper went to press.
    “We sent out storm spotters who went to different parts of the county to verify sitings and do damage assessment,” Campbell said. “One tornado verified by a certified spotter was in the New Richmond area.”
