Possible Pendleton Tornado: City closed to cars after a night of heavy storms
Pendleton residents are still being asked to stay indoors after heavy storms and possible tornadoes hit the city on Sunday night.

In an update on Monday morning, the Madison County Emergency Management Agency said area police had established a perimeter to close the cars to the city. State highway 38 to Pendleton is closed, but state highway 67 is open in both directions.

Emergency management officials are still asking residents to take refuge in their place. They ask that people not start repairs until the shelter order is lifted in place. Pendleton Heights High School is open as an emergency shelter.

Emergency management said that around 4,200 residents of Pendleton are without electricity. There is no timeline for restoration, but teams from other areas are being brought in.

The National Weather Service is sending a team to examine the damages at Pendleton in Huntsville in Madison County and possibly Middletown in Henry County. Other equipment can be sent to Tippecanoe County, the Meteorological Service said.

The storms are ready to return on Tuesday afternoon and night, which provides the possibility of another round of damaging winds, hail, and lightning.
