A line of storms bringing heavy rain to parts of central Indiana also spawned two tornadoes.

Tornado warnings were issued for parts of Greene, Owen, Daviess and Martin counties around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police spotted two tornadoes near Bloomfield, but no damage or injuries have been reported.

"Matter of fact, I loaded in Newberry. It was very dark and the wind got real high and they said a tornado had touched down somewhere in that area," said a truck driver near Cloverdale. "I'm going to sit here, check the radar and make sure everything's good."

The heavy rain has raised flooding concerns in parts of Vermillion and Fountain counties. That area received nearly 2.5 inches Tuesday evening and there are reports of secondary roads under water in Vermillion County.

Other pockets of heavy rain overnight and Wednesday may cause more flooding across central Indiana.

In Hamilton County, EMA officials reported minor damage, including downed trees in some parts of Fishers.
