    A dangerous tornado situation unfolded near Indianapolis Tuesday afternoon after a destructive tornado touched down in the area.

    Around 2:30 p.m. EDT, reports came in of a large and extremely dangerous tornado southwest of the city. The Hendricks County Emergency Management Agency reported damage to three homes in a story reported by the Associated Press.
