A strong tornado that moved through South Bend, Indiana on Sunday night received an EF-2 rating from the National Weather Service on Monday.

Here were the results of the survey, conducted by the National Weather Service’s Northern Indiana office on Monday:


The tornado tracked for about two miles through the south side of the city of South Bend. No injuries or fatalities were reported from the tornado, though it did destroy a daycare, according to the South Bend Tribune.

The tornado moved through on Sunday night just after 8:30pm Eastern time (local time) as part of a line of strong storms moved through northern Indiana.

A tornado with an Enhanced Fujita (EF) rating of two or above is considered to be a “strong” tornado.

More storms – including the possibility for severe ones – are possible in the area on Monday and Tuesday, though the end of the week is expected to be a bit calmer.
