 Brief Description: A tornado touched down just west of Interstate 65 and Main Street in Greenwood on the evening of 31 March 2006. This tornado was on the ground for 25 minutes, covered an area 17 miles long, and caused significant damage to several homes and businesses along its path, which continued into neighboring Shelby County. At its peak, near the small town of London in Shelby County, the tornado was a strong F2, with a width of four tenths of a mile. The tornado lifted near US 52 and State Road 9 in north central Shelby County. According to the American Red Cross of Greater Indianapolis, more than 140 homes were damaged, some of them severely. Fortunately, no fatalities or life-threatening injuries were reported, although at least one driver, Megan Mahoney of Chesterfield, MO, sustained a concussion when her car was rolled or tossed off of Interstate 74 in Shelby County and into the yard of a home over 150 feet away. This was the third significant tornado in just over three and a half years to affect the southern suburbs of the Indianapolis metropolitan area. Severe thunderstorms which formed over northwest central Indiana quickly transitioned to a powerful and expanding squall line with embedded supercells that moved southeast through central Indiana during the afternoon and evening of 31 March 2006. Two tornadoes touched down in the 9-county Indianapolis metropolitan area, one of which was on the ground for 17 miles and did an estimated 8 million dollars in damage.

 Brief Description: A strong F3 tornado touched down in northern Bartholomew county on 15 November 2005, continuing into southeast Shelby county, where it would do the majority of its damage. No one was killed by this powerful tornado, despite areas of severe damage, and only one minor injury was reported. A resident sustained an ankle injury when moving quickly down into his basement with his family to take cover. The worst damage along the tornado's path took place along and near Vandalia Road just east of the town of Geneva, where a large hog farm was severely damaged, and an old farm house was blown off its foundation. The structural integrity of the destroyed home was insufficient to justify a violent rating. Around 25 properties were damaged in this largely rural area, with six declared total losses. An area of severe thunderstorms moved through central Indiana on the afternoon and evening of 15 November 2005, fueled by abnormally warm conditions which had been the rule across the region for the first half of the month. One strongly rotating supercell produced three tornadoes, two of them rated strong F3, over southern portions of central Indiana. Additional severe weather occurred with other supercells and squall line storms across central Indiana. Thanks to early warnings and heightened awareness of the severe weather threat, no one was killed by the tornadoes, and only one serious injury was reported.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: The tornado that entered this county exited the Grissom Air Reserve base on the Cass/Miami county line and continued east-southeast, crossing a small area of trees where signs of slight debarking was noted (DI: TH DOD: 5). The tornado continued on along to the 3000 block of County Road 900 South where the most substantial damage occurred to a one and one half story home. Only a few kitchen walls remains of the structure (DI: FR12, DOD 8) with one resident in the kitchen and one in the basement. Two other residences suffered extensive damage but remained intact. The tornado crossed US 31 and continued for a few more miles, causing some additional tree and structure damage including several buildings at a hog farm being destroyed. The tornado eventually dissipated east of Strawpike Road, north of East 1000 South in a field. A local newspaper article reported that a check that was originally located at the destroyed home, was found nearly 50 miles away in Wells county in perfect condition. Total damage along the track of the tornado is estimated at $750,000. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A supercell developed ahead of a cold front in Illinois and tracked east-southeast through Benton county into White county. This storm produced three tornadoes across Indiana, an EF0 in eastern White county (which moved into Carroll county), an EF1 which started in eastern Carroll county and moved into Cass county, and a third, a stronger EF3 which formed near the Grissom Air Force base in Cass county and moved rapidly east into Miami county. Despite the tornadoes occurring during the overnight hours, no fatalities occurred.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: After a brief break, the supercell produced one more circulation which touched down just west of the Cass/Miami county line along South County Road 1000 East. Several yards in the area had trees uprooted and limbs down (DI: TH, DOD: 4). A few residences were impacted by the trees, causing mainly roof or window damage . The circulation then went into a dense grove of trees with the circulation briefly weakening before coming back out near the Grissom Air Reserve Base. A 200 foot section of security fence on the southwest corner of the base was blown down into the adjacent roadway and portions of the nearby field before crossing into Miami county. An Automated Weather Observation System recorded a 114 mph wind gust as the circulation passed through. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A supercell developed ahead of a cold front in Illinois and tracked east-southeast through Benton county into White county. This storm produced three tornadoes across Indiana, an EF0 in eastern White county (which moved into Carroll county), an EF1 which started in eastern Carroll county and moved into Cass county, and a third, a stronger EF3 which formed near the Grissom Air Force base in Cass county and moved rapidly east into Miami county.
