INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana State Police spokesman Capt. David Bursten says about a dozen people were injured, none seriously, as tornadoes moved through central portions of the state.

Most of those injuries were in Howard County and included one resident who was trapped in a home by one of the storms that struck Wednesday.

Bursten says those injured included a 5-month-old child who suffered a laceration in Montgomery County. He attributes the relatively small number of injuries reported by 8 p.m. to residents’ taking the approaching storms seriously.

“We were very, very fortunate, and you have to credit the advance warnings and people heeding those warnings,” he said.
