ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) – Friday night’s storms brought powerful wind, rain, and more to the Allen County area. Along with that, two tornadoes touched down in the county.
The National Weather Service confirmed Saturday that one of the tornadoes was an EF-2 that had a peak wind of 120 MPH, traveled nearly eight miles, and had a maximum path width of 400 yards.
The summary for that tornado concluded it developed in northeast Fort Wayne and raced northeast toward the town of Harlan.
The second tornado was an EF-0 that peaked at 75 MPH and was on the ground for a little more than a mile. This tornado caused minor damage to a few homes and barns, according to the NWS.
During the storm, the WANE 15 weather team’s debris tracker picked up what looks like tornado debris scattered along a northeast-bound path through Harlan. The debris track is outlined with a white “0” in the video below.
We also received viewer photos from the Harlan area that shows damage from one of the twisters.
This is the first time a tornado has been documented in Allen County since August of 2016.
