HENRYVILLE, IN (WAVE) – Large tornadoes roared across south-central Indiana Friday afternoon, causing widespread damage and injuries, most notably in the northern Clark County communities of Henryville, Memphis, Maryville and Borden.
The Jefferson County, IN coroner was called to investigate possibly two deaths in Chelsea. A four-year-old child is believed to be missing there.
Firefighters told WAVE 3 Henryville Junior-Senior High School was destroyed. Borden High School also sustained damage.
The Jeffersonville Fire Department was sending search and rescue teams to Henryville.
Leslie Kavanaugh, head of the Clark County Emergency Management Agency, said crews are also responding to reports of damage at the Scott/Washington County line.
Meteorologist John Belski said this appeared to be a multiple vortex tornado, meaning there are tornadoes inside a larger tornado.
