Three people were injured after severe weather tore from Indiana to Kentucky and Tennessee to end the week.
One firefighter suffered a minor injury and over a dozen homes were damaged near New Middletown, Indiana, on Friday when a tornado-warned thunderstorm moved through the area.
Based on video evidence, the National Weather Service confirmed a tornado occurred in the town, according to the Courier-Journal. A survey team determined that it was an EF-1 tornado that caused the damage.
New Middletown is located approximately 15 miles southwest of Louisville, Kentucky.
A tornado was also reported in Madison County, Indiana, with reports of a barn destroyed near Moonville.
In Norwood, Ohio, and Michigan City, Indiana, two people were treated for injuries sustained from fallen trees.

Over 100,000 people were left without power in Kentucky after the severe weather blew through.
Wind gusts reached 70 mph at a weather observation station at Blue Grass Airport in Lexington, Kentucky, on Friday afternoon.
Pictures on social media showed streets and yards littered with leaves, tree branches and fallen trees throughout the region.
In addition to the widespread damaging winds, massive hailstones were also reported.
In Tompkinsville, Kentucky, hail with a diameter of 4 inches, which is equivalent to a grapefruit, was reported.
A check of the archives shows the Tompkinsville hail report yesterday is not a state record. On 4/23/68, 5" diameter hail was reported in Harlan Co. Several locations in KY had 4.5" (grapefruit) hail on 5/1/2002. #kywx— NWS Louisville (@NWSLouisville) July 21, 2018
Hail sizes ranging from golf balls to baseballs were also common across the area.
